- This is my third year at Mariposa, and my twenty-sixth year as an educator. Throughout my entire career, third-fifth grade has been my sweet spot. I spent twelve years teaching in this grade span, and spent an additional seven years mentoring, coaching and leading upper elementary educators. Before coming to San Carlos, I was a K-5 principal in Menlo Park City School District.
- I am particularly passionate about designing learning experiences that engage students and foster ownership, creativity, and collaboration. This aligns perfectly with the new Strategic Plan for San Carlos Schools, so I'm looking forward to bringing that focus to Mariposa in the 23-24 school year.
- In addition to being a principal and lifelong learner, I am also a mom. My two boys are in sixth grade and tenth grade, so I understand the parent side of this age span, too! We live on the Peninsula and enjoy lots of baseball, hiking/biking, reading, cooking and family game nights.
