About Me: This will be my third year as Assistant Principal at North Middle School. Before becoming a polar bear, I spent 8 years teaching humanities, and then served as an instructional coach. I spent 4 years as an Assistant Principal and Principal of an online school, which came in very handy during the last school year. I love spending my days at North interacting with our amazing staff and students. When I am not at North, you can usually find me on the hiking trails, running, or with my nose buried in a book. I am very excited for the 21-22 school year and to invite all of our students back to in person learning!

North Edge Characteristic that resonates with me:

After the past year, humility is the characteristic that most resonates with me. I believe that no matter what the role, or our level of experience, there is always more to learn, both in life and in work. While I always have a book nearby, I find that my collaboration with others is where I am most challenged to expand my thinking. I feel grateful that I am part of a team that continues to help me explore ways in which I can continue to grow and support our work.
