    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!


    I'm very excited to continue my 15th year in education and my 2nd year as an Assistant Principal at Prairie Hills Junior High School. I feel very BLESSED to work with such knowledgeable, dedicated and caring staff every day. It is also certainly a pleasure to spend my days helping provide a safe, predictable, engaging and nurturing environment in which your children can grow academically, socially and emotionally.  I am always amazed by the true power of education as an avenue for students to reach their goals and realize their dreams.

     As the assistant principal, I will work to support students academically, socially and emotionally. I believe in the potential of EACH student and realize we are not just preparing them for the next grade, but for the future. We are committed to producing lifelong learners that are college bound, career ready, and are able to compete in a global society. This preparation will include experiences that are challenging, relevant and meet the needs of the individual student.

    I believe in open communication and a strong home to school connection. Please feel free to contact me with any celebrations or concerns you may have. It is exciting to think about all that we will achieve working together.

    As Assistant Principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel to call, email or make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas that would contribute to the success of your child and the school.

     Let’s make this year GREAT!
