"I don't want anyone to walk through the world feeling invisible ever again" -Jacqueline Woodson.
Favorite Class, I Ever Took: A pasta-making class in Italy. I love to eat! So it was so much fun to learn and eat at the same time.
Work History: I began teaching in Milwaukee Public Schools before moving to the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District and became a teacher at West Milwaukee Intermediate in 2011. After a year of teaching at West Milwaukee, I became the Assistant Principal and worked there for four years before moving to the Assistant Principal role at Nathan Hale High School for four years. I am now excited and proud to announce that I now have the honor of coming back to be the Principal at West Milwaukee Intermediate School.
School History: I am a proud graduate of the University of Milwaukee. Go Panthers! I received my Bachelor’s in Science in 2006 and then returned to UW-Milwaukee in 2011 for my Masters in Administrative Leadership and Director of Instruction.
My Family: I have four exceptional teenage children--Dean, who will be a freshman at the University of UW-Whitewater; Allie, a senior; Jake, a junior; and Erika, a freshman--who all keep me very busy. I also have a very supportive husband who helps me balance all of them. We are a family of six who, between us, attend four schools. I was born in Pennsylvania but have lived in Wisconsin for twenty years and now call it home.
My Hobbies: I would say eating, my kids, and travel.
My Favorite Place to Travel: Anyplace with a beach and great food! I am obsessed with trying new foods, tasting new foods, cooking, and baking new things, so when I'm not at work, I'm someplace near food.
