Previous education experience and number of years in the field:

My teaching experience began at Canton Charter Academy. I taught first grade for seven years and taught second grade for two years. I then transferred to Achieve Charter Academy as the K-2 Dean.  I worked at Achieve for five years.  I helped open both schools.
This summer I transferred to South Canton Scholars as the principal.  This will be my first year at SCS.

What do you like most about working here?

I enjoy the collaboration and teamwork among staff, parents and students. We all have the same goal, to increase student achievement.   


I have been married to my husband, Danny for thirteen years.  We have six year old boy/girl twins-Dominic and Eliana.  Spending time with my family is my favorite activity.  I also love to read and go to the beach.
