Assistant Principal

I am so excited to begin the school year as an Assistant Principal here at Lewis-Palmer High School! I began my education career in District #38 at Palmer Lake Elementary School (a very long time ago) and graduated a proud Ranger in 1988. I was very fortunate to play volleyball and basketball at the collegiate level and earn a BA in Secondary Education, Social Science and Physical Education from Grand Canyon University (Go ‘Lopes!) My teaching and coaching career began in Prescott Valley, AZ and then I made my way back to Colorado. In my tenure at Manitou Springs High School I taught social science, served as the Gifted and Talented Coordinator and coached volleyball and basketball. I also had the opportunity to teach social science and coordinate the MTSS program at Pine Creek High School. As I begin my 25th year in education I am grateful to be back home and I look forward to working with the talented students, staff, and parents here at LP.
