I'm so excited to join the Valley Park Family. The Blue Valley School District and Valley Park Elementary have a long standing tradition of excellence and I feel fortunate to be a part of it. I myself am a product of Blue Valley K-12. I attended Stanley Elementary, Blue Valley Middle School and Blue Valley High School. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Kansas State University and a Master's Degree in School Leadership from Pittsburg State University. During my time as an educator, I've served as a 2nd grade teacher, 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher and an elementary school principal. I have a true passion for learning and I have enjoyed every position I have had in education. In my opinion, the best thing about becoming an educator is knowing that I have the ability to have a positive impact on kids every day.

It is my privilege to serve as the Principal of Valley Park Elementary. In many ways I feel as though I've come home to Blue Valley. I love that I can now give back to the district that provided me with such wonderful opportunities in my youth.

As the year begins, I look forward to meeting all of the Valley Park families. I'm excited to begin working with you to make this year great!‚Äč
