Hi, McCoy Family. I am excited to be the new assistant principal at McCoy Elementary for the 2023 – 2024 school year.  My educational experiences have included teaching multiple age groups from early childhood to post-secondary education. I have 6 years of experience as an assistant principal. I look forward to a fantastic year of learning and growing with wonderful teachers, students, and families.

I earned my bachelor’s degree from Western Illinois University and my master’s degree from the University of Phoenix. Although educational experiences are wonderful, I believe learning experiences happen everywhere, all the time. I am the mother of four boys who have very diverse needs and talents. They have taught me far more than I have taught them.

I believe education empowers us to achieve goals. I strive to empower students to dream big, be creative, and work hard so great things will happen. I hope to support McCoy Elementary in providing diverse learning opportunities where students can grow and succeed through creative learning experiences.
