Welcome to Pomeroy! I am pleased to officially take on the role of Principal here. I proudly worked as the principal of Whitman Elementary School for many years. My background includes working in several Mesa schools and Scottsdale schools which brings a wide variety of experiences to my position as principal. Previous positions include serving as the principal of Pueblo Elementary in Scottsdale for two years. Prior to that, I served as assistant principal of Hohokam Elementary School, a K-6 school in the Scottsdale School District, and administrative intern at Salk and Jefferson In Mesa. Teaching highlights include past experiences at teaching fifth, sixth, first and second grades, teaching physical education and coaching a variety of youth sports.
I grew up in Anoka, Minnesota. After high school, I attended the University of Minnesota, with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education and then earned my Masters Degree in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix. I also hold endorsements in English as a Second Language and Adult Education. My husband Ken was also a principal in Mesa Public Schools prior to his retirement. We have two wonderful sons.
My belief systems have been formed around the idea that when working together, the stakeholders of a school can create a profound, meaningful experience for every child. Every student will feel the personal connections needed to thrive in a world that can sometimes be very impersonal.
I am looking forward to another wonderful year here at Pomeroy!
