Hello Stayton Community!

I am delighted to have served as the principal of Stayton Elementary School since 2013. I have been in the education field for more than two decades. I spent the first 12 of those years teaching mostly first and second grade at Miller Elementary School in Salem.  I also spent a year as their instructional coach. I gained a lot of experience and knowledge during my time as a teacher and now as a principal.  

My undergraduate degree in Liberal Arts was obtained from Simpson University as well as my fifth year teaching credential.  I obtained my Masters of Education in Education Administration from Concordia University. I am currently completing the coursework for my Continuing Administrative License there as well.    

I have been married since 1987, and have two grown daughters.  Our oldest daughter is employed as a middle school orchestra teacher.  Our youngest daughter is completing her degree at Portland State. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing games, watching movies and listening to live music.  When I am not spending time with my family, I enjoy spending time with friends and reading. My summers are spent traveling, as this is a love of mine. I look forward to a great school year here at Stayton Elementary!

Although I originally set my sights on a career in Neverland where I would never have to grow up, I found that teaching afforded the same perks-minus the pirates!

I have spent the last 19 years (almost as long as Professor Dumbledore) finding great joy working with students at Stayton Elementary School. I have spent most of that time primarily as a kindergarten teacher where the students' love learning and belief in magic gave me the strength and courage to pursue additional academic adventures. I hold multiple degrees and certifications from a variety of colleges. Because I always love a challenge I decided to try a new adventure and become the Dean of Students.

Now in my spare time, I enjoy a good game night with family and friends, going to the movies, and curling up with a great book. I can often be seen sneaking into classrooms where I enjoy reading and working with students but also passing on some of my magic pixie dust as a coach to the next generation of teachers that don't want to grow up!
