I am so proud to be the New Principal of Holmes Elementary School. 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 a private 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 almost 25 years, and together we have 3 children. Our boys are 22 and 18 years old. Both are in college working toward their dreams in life. Our daughter is a sophomore in high school with dreams of her own. We have 2 Miniature Schnauzers which complete our family, one of which we purchased in the Holmes neighborhood about 11 years ago.
When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family, go to the movies, shop with my daughter, and take care of my six month old nephew, whose smile warms my heart.
I absolutely LOVE my job and going to work every day! I am a life-long learner and will continue to learn from my staff, colleagues, and any other 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!
