I am honored and beyond excited to be the principal at King Elementary for the 2023-2024 school year! My family has been a part of the District 11 community for many years, and I am excited to be working in the district that we live in. Two of my children graduated from Doherty High School and two of my family members have worked in D11 schools. District 11 is home to my family.
This year is my 25th year in education. I started my career in the classroom, teaching kindergarten, first and second grade before becoming a reading teacher for K-5 students. After that, I was a literacy coach for several years before becoming an assistant principal for 4 years and an elementary principal for 7 years. Most recently, I was a director of special services where I supported programming for special education, gifted and multi-lingual learners. Each of these milestones in my career has prepared me to be the principal at King Elementary.
I can’t wait to meet all the amazing students and families that are part of the King family. King is a great school and I look forward to supporting the King community with continuing the school’s mission to Dream, Achieve, Empower.
