Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be in District 49 and the Falcon Zone. My vision and leadership is centered on fostering the capacity to do effective collaborative work within school and district settings. I am people-oriented (whether it is a student, educator, parent, or community member) and know that deep, reciprocal relationships lead to greater success.
I embrace the district’s strategic plan, with such a clear focus on “Every student” and the identified importance of both trust and community. In addition, the spotlight on innovation as an entire district and the way in which District 49 has created innovative options for families is refreshing.
The emphasis on relationship-building in preparing students to be successful, competent and productive in our cultural compass sets the course for how we treat each other and our work. Maintaining and enhancing a positive culture is extremely important in high performing organizations.
I have an extensive background in curriculum, instruction and professional development. In addition, leadership development is always a focus for the setting in which I work. I have implemented a variety of instructional modules for leadership growth during the past several years. Finally, my experience in supervising a variety of special programs during my years as a school and district administrator has provided me with a depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise.
I look forward to collaborating with families as we continue the strong legacy of success in Falcon Zone.
