It is an honor to be a part of the Mesa family! I am very excited to serve as Principal at Mesa and to have the opportunity to serve the students, staff and the community of Mesa.
Prior to starting at Mesa, I was an Assistant Principal at Weikel Elementary in D8 for four years. Additionally, I spent 15 years in the classroom teaching 5th-9th grades and special education K-6th. My experiences have taught me the value of building relationships and the importance of working together for the benefit of all of our students. I am committed to ensuring a safe learning environment as well as a positive and successful educational experience for your child/children.
I am a Wisconsin native and a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan! Go Pack! I completed my undergraduate degrees in Elementary/Middle and Special Education at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 1998. Soon after, I moved to the beautiful state of CO where I completed my masters in Curriculum and Instruction with my certification in Administration. I have had amazing opportunities to teach in several CO school districts and lived and taught in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico for two years (go Chivas!). My favorite activities, when I am away from my Mesa family, are: skiing (I LOOOOVE cold and snowy weather), watching football, hiking, reading, cooking, being with my friends, and finding any opportunity to practice speaking Spanish. I am blessed to have amazing friends here in CO. Any chance I have, I spend with these fabulous people! Mesa is a perfect fit for me! I love our family environment and our OUTSTANDING community. We work hard every day to make sure our students will be successful members of our community. We are committed to excellence and strive to create and implement high expectations through engaging and creative lessons. I am so excited to be spending my ninth year in administration and my 24th year in education at Mesa. I look forward to experiencing this adventure with the phenomenal staff and community that surround me.
Dream BIG, Work Hard, and Make it Happen!
