Principal/ Director of Special education
I am honored to join the Jamestown/ Chinese Camp school family as the new principal and director of Special Education. As a parent of students at Jamestown and Chinese Camp, I have seen firsthand the amazing school community and dedication of staff in our school district. When given the opportunity to become a part of the team, I eagerly accepted!
I come to Jamestown with nearly 20 years of experience in education. Prior to entering school administration, I was an elementary and middle school teacher. I taught students in grades 4-8, at home in California and internationally. After ten years as a classroom teacher, I entered school administration. This year will mark my ninth year as a school administrator. As an educational leader, I believe that building relationships with students, staff, and the community is essential for partnering in a manner that drives success. I strive to ensure that all students feel safe, and loved as the first steps to enhance learning.
I look forward to working with the Jamestown/ Chinese Camp team to enhance the learning experiences of our students with data-driven instruction, positive and proactive behavior management, and best practices for developing the whole child.
I look forward to partnering with families to continue to give our students access to the memorable school experiences of childhood.
Outside of school, I enjoy active time with family and friends. I love to hike, camp, and be outdoors. I enjoy time in my garden, reading, jogging, biking, and crafting. I love to travel to new places and learn about people, languages, and cultures.
I look forward to getting to know the students here at Jamestown and at Chinese Camp. I am eager to learn from the team on both campuses, and cannot wait to get the year started.
