Dear Holmes Community,
I have been the proud Principal of Holmes Elementary School for 4 years. I absolutely LOVE our school family and community.
Prior to coming to Holmes, I was an Assistant Principal for 6 years in the Kyrene School District. I was also a classroom teacher for 13 years. I have taught students of all ages K-5 and will always be a teacher at heart. I received my Master's degree from NAU and my Bachelor's from Park College in Kansas City, MO. I absolutely love working with people, and working with children fills my heart with joy each and every day. I believe ALL children can learn and I will do everything I can to guide students in the direction of their DREAMS!
I've been married to my best friend for 27 years, and together we have 3 children. Our kids are 25, 23 and 19 years old. All three are in college pursuing their dreams. We have 3 dogs which complete our family.
When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family, go to the movies, shop with my daughter, and spend time with my 4 year old nephew, whose smile warms everyone's heart.
I absolutely LOVE my job and going to work every day! I am a life-long learner and will continue to learn with my staff, colleagues, and try to take advantage of the opportunities Mesa provides.
I am committed to working together with the staff at Holmes in providing a quality education, a safe environment to learn in and meeting all the individual needs of the children at Holmes. We value parent partnerships and want to work as a team to educate your children making all their DREAMS come true!
