My family and I live in Nags Head, where we've been for twenty-one years. Originally from Evanston, Illinois, I attended college at The College of Wooster in Ohio, graduating with a degree in Psychology and Education. I am a lifelong learner and enjoy being a student. I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in 1997, my National Boards in 2000 (renewed in 2010) and my Masters of School Administration in 2013.
I have twenty-four years of classroom teaching experience, but spent the last couple of years at FFHS and MMS as administrative intern and assistant principal where I had the opportunity to learn from the best, be an active participant in PLCs, and work first hand with students and teachers. My philosophy is pretty simple:
I believe in doing what's best for our students, learning from mistakes and leading by example.
