I am filled with great pride and excitement and I feel truly blessed to be the Principal of St. Mary's Elementary School.  I have been in Catholic Education for over 15 years, specifically in the elementary school setting. I am excited to be the educational leader at St. Mary's and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure the success of your child.

I plan on working towards the success of SME by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and the community.  It is important to me to ensure a nurturing safe environment for children, use data to help drive instruction, be consistent in the implementation of instructional strategies in order to increase students' achievement, as well in all decision making and to provide opportunities for all students to thrive. During the school year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of SME the best possible opportunities and to prepare them to be well rounded Catholic students. It is my hope that our students will leave us prepared to meet the challenges ahead of them with a solid foundation that has been created and fostered at our school.

As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call and make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas that can help to make this a successful year!
