I am honored and excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Maricopa High School! It is a privilege to have been selected to serve this community and I look forward to collaborating with the staff, students and families of MHS as we inspire our students through collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and innovation.
As the daughter of a secondary English teacher and high school counselor, I was inspired to become a teacher early on. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Art Education from Northern Arizona University and Masters’ Degree in Administrative Leadership from Grand Canyon University. For the past 20 years I have proudly served the diverse Northern Arizona communities of Holbrook and Winslow. In addition to being a dedicated educator, I am devoted to my family. I am a mother to three daughters and two dogs.
I am passionate about fairness, high standards and believing the best in people. I am committed to nurturing a safe and inviting environment that fosters discovery by allowing people to feel safe to learn and grow. I will always offer my best and will encourage others to do the same, particularly to our kids. I cherish this opportunity to be part of the diverse Maricopa community and join the #RamNation family. But, I am most excited about the work we will do together as we “prepare today's learners for tomorrow's opportunities”.
Stay safe and healthy,
