    It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I write this letter of introduction as the 6th grade Assistant Principal of Sylvan Hills Middle School. I am so excited to welcome our newest Golden Bears to the DEN. Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly challenging and enriching school experience.


    I am entering my fifteenth year in education. I spent 10 years as a classroom teacher, before moving into an Assistant Principal position for five years.  I served the Sylvan community as an 8th grade teacher from  2011-2018, as well as being named the 2017-2018 Sylvan Teacher of the Year, APS Middle Schools Teacher of the year, and APS Districtwide Teacher of the Year. I served as Assistant Principal in elementary school for two years, but I feel very fortunate to be returning home to the DEN.  Sylvan is a special and unique community of which I am proud to be a part of once again.


    The middle school years are important and critical times for students. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is safe and respectable, in order for your child to receive the best possible academic instruction. I am confident that our school will continue to be a place where our students can learn and grow academically and socially.


    Feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open. If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know.
