    At Jackson, we are passionate about learning and student success and are committed to providing the best educational experience possible for every student.  We value parent engagement and believe that parents and teachers working together is the best practice for guiding success in every student.  The success of our school is accredited to our highly skilled and dedicated staff that works tirelessly to challenge every learner and practice innovation through a model of continuous improvement.  It is my honor and privilege to work amongst such an outstanding group of educators in a community so connected and supportive of their children’s education. 

    I have been in the education field for over 25 years in a variety of roles including elementary teacher grades 1, 2, 3, & 5, middle school math, graduate level adjunct professor, instructional coach, and school administrator positions, most recently as the principal of Pearson Sixth Grade Center. 

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any reason if I am able to assist with any concerns or thoughts you would like to share.

    Looking forward to an outstanding year!
