Professional Biography

  • This is my 32nd  year in education in the North Thurston School District. This is my sixth year as Principal at Lakes Elementary.  Previously, I was Assistant Principal for one year and Dean of Students for three. In this role, I get the opportunity to work with all students and staff to help make Lakes a safe, positive learning environment where all can achieve their highest potential. The first six years of my career were as a first grade teacher at Woodland Elementary. Since then, I have been teaching at Lakes Elementary in a variety of levels. As a classroom teacher, I taught first and second grade, as well as, multi-age classrooms. For 11 years, I worked in the Learning Assistance Program supporting students with reading and/or math challenges. The last five years in the LAP program, I was also a Building Instructional Coach. As a coach, I worked with teachers supporting their professional development in the classroom, as well as, with grade levels and large groups on a chosen area of professional growth. I earned my Masters in education at the University of Portland in 2001 and earned my administrative credentials through the University of Washington Tacoma in 2014. I am proud to be the learning leader of the dedicated and compassionate teachers at Lakes Elementary.
