Welcome. It is my pleasure to serve the students, staff, families, and community as the Assistant Principal. I believe in partnering with you to provide the best education for all of our children. My time is split between Lewis-Palmer and Bear Creek Elementary. You can find me at Lewis-Palmer on Mondays and Tuesdays and alternating Wednesdays and at Bear Creek on Thursdays and Fridays and opposite Wednesdays. I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone. When you see me, please introduce yourself. If you need to contact me, it is easiest send me an email and I’ll get back to you.
I began my education career at Lewis-Palmer Elementary in 2004 as a kindergarten teacher. In 2006 I continued to serve other districts as an elementary and middle school teacher. In 2016-2018, I served as an Assistant Principal in Aurora. My education includes an Educational Specialist Degree in Administration and Policy Studies along with Master degrees in Curriculum and Instruction and Business Administration.
I have three grown boys who were my inspiration for joining the education community. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, kayaking, skiing, and reading.
