Welcome. I am very proud to be the principal of an exceptional school like Irving Elementary. My education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!). I also have a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.
I have been in the educational field for over 15 years. I started my teaching career in beautiful Washington State. I have had the pleasure of working in Mesa Public Schools for the past 11 years. I have held many positions during my 15 years which helps to bring a wide variety of experiences to my position as Irving's principal.
I strongly support our motto of Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day. Our staff works hard to ensure that every child learns and reaches his/her full potential. I believe that parents also play a critical role in educating the child. Together we can accomplish so much.
Here's to a great year at Irving! I am looking forward to seeing you throughout the year as you visit our school. I encourage you to stay involved and continue to volunteer your time and support.
