It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the new principal of Booker T. Washington Elementary. I am truly honored to become part of such a caring community that values education and has achieved an A+ School status. I look forward to meeting each of you as we start this new and exciting year together. Please know my door is always open and I welcome you to stop by anytime.

My life in education began in my home state of Montana where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I taught on a Hutterite Colony and had the unique experience of teaching preschool through seventh grade students in a two-room school house. Then I moved to Toronto, Canada and taught in a private school for three years. After getting married and having our daughter, we moved here to the Valley of the Sun where I earned my Master's in Administration and Supervision from ASU. It has been my pleasure to work within our Mesa Public Schools as a classroom teacher for 12 years, three years as a Title I Specialist, and three years as a Dean of Students. Now as Washington's principal, I look forward to supporting our school as we continue on the path of academic excellence, developing our students' love of learning, and connecting our community so we are united in our pursuit of student success.

I truly believe possibilities are endless when we work together. Please join us for the following:

Friday, August 2 from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m.     Meet the Teacher

Thursday, August 15 at 7:45 a.m.            Coffee with the Principal

Thank you for welcoming me and I am excited to get to know you this year!
