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.
