I have been with Urbana City Schools since 2000, beginning my career in education as a Kindergarten Teacher for 18 years and now as the Principal for grades kindergarten through second grade. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education grades K-8, a K-12 Reading Endorsement, Masters of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction/Reading, and a Masters of Art degree in School Leadership. However, my greatest accomplishment in my life is my family. I have two married adult children, Katy (Ryan) and Christopher (Jessica), a daughter Lani in Heaven, three grandsons, Keaton, Caizen, and Ozzy, and a granddaughter, Laiyton. I love to travel and spend time with my family and our favorite place to go is anywhere we can find a beach!
