Hello Firebirds!

I am honored to be the 4th principal of Falcon Hill Elementary where we "Soar to new heights!"


I have been fortunate to spend 17 years doing what I love and getting to spend every day with kids. My family is just as excited about my move to Falcon Hill. My husband Patrick and I have 2 children, Justin and Nia. In addition to our two beautiful children, we have two gorgeous granddaughters!

Before moving to Arizona, I taught junior high social studies, writing and communication skills in both Washington and North Carolina. 

My journey in Mesa Public Schools began in 1999 at Kerr Elementary where I taught both 4th and 5th grade. I moved moving from classroom teacher to instructional/professional development in 2002 specialist and have had the privilege of working at several schools in Mesa including Holmes and Guerrero. For 6 years I worked as the TAP Master Teacher at Guerrero which has allowed me to do the two things I love most, teach students and coach teachers.

As I begin my first year as the principal at Falcon Hill, I am sincerely honored to be a part of such a supportive community. Falcon Hill is a special place where staff and students are "...Rising to New Heights of Excellence!"
