    I've had the pleasure to work with the wonderful students and staff at Shakopee West Middle School as a Dean of Students and now, the Principal (2022/23 school year).  I was a teacher in Shakopee most of my career starting in 2008.  I taught secondary Science in the district for nine years before spending two years as an instructional coach.  I am fortunate to be able to keep learning and growing in my career as the Principal of this incredible school.
    I look forward to continuing to partner with the amazing students and parents that we have in our school community!
