It is truly an honor to serve this community as principal.  In the time I have had to lead this year so far, I know that it is a unique and special place, and I am incredibly grateful and excited to be a part of it.

I come to you with 14 years of experience as an educator.  I spent 5 years in the classroom teaching primarily 4th and 5th grades. I then had the opportunity to serve as an instructional math coach around the district in a variety of elementary schools. Over the last 4 years, including this year, I have had the privilege of serving as Assistant Principal at Battle Academy and here at Alpine Crest Elementary. 

Over the remainder of this school year, I plan to continue the great work that Dr. Weiss and the faculty and staff have already been doing.  I look forward to getting to know each of you more and familiarize myself with the values and needs you have for our school.  I believe wholeheartedly that EVERY student deserves a high quality education and that only happens when the school and the families work together for the best interests of our students. 

I am truly honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to continuing the pursuit of excellence in our school and in our community.  My goal is to provide all students a safe and supportive learning environment in which both students and teachers aspire to be lifelong learners and we work together to help everyone reach their full potential.  

I look forward to meeting all of you if I have not already and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
