I have been involved in education for over 15 years. I completed my Bachelors degree at the University of California, Riverside, and later obtained my Masters in Teaching degree from George Fox University.
My career in education began here in Beaverton where I taught 7th grade science. Middle schools have always been my passion for teaching and learning! Following that, I was Assistant Principal at Health and Science School before becoming Principal at Highland Park Middle School. I have a strong passion for both STEAM education, and for the middle school years. I believe in the unlimited potential of each of our students to learn and accomplish greatness.
Outside of school, I enjoy maintaining my physical health through exercise, cooking new dishes (unfortunately none very well!), reading historical fictions or suspense novels, and spending time with my loved ones.
I am very excited to be part of the Highland Community. Together, we will make a positive difference in the lives of all of our students!
