I am a proud Northwest R-1 Alum.  My teaching career began in a charter school in St. Louis teaching 1st and 4th grades, before transferring back to Northwest 10 years ago. I taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades, mostly at Brennan Woods Elementary. I currently serve as an Assistant Principal, dividing my time between House Springs and High Ridge Elementary. Empowering students and teachers to let their leadership shine bright is my passion. I look forward to a fantastic school year at HSE!
