I’ve been an educational leader for over 20 years. I have served as aclassroom teacher, an instructional leader, and assistant principal/principalat a variety of public schools in Florida, Maryland and Virginia. In 2012, I happily joined Arlington Public Schoolsas the Assistant Principal for Drew Model School.  In 2015, I became the Principal for Drew Model School.  My previous experience at a MontessoriCharter School in Fredrick, MD, helped me earn the role as the Principal of a school with a strong Montessori Program.  I have a Masters Degree in Montessori andElementary Education with an Ed.S in Administration.  I’m very excited to be embarking on my fourthyear at Drew and look forward to another wonderful school year.

I have 18 years of experience as an educator, with the last three years at WilliamsburgMiddle School as Assistant Principal.  I worked previously as a history teacher, alternative education coordinator, counselor and dean of students, primarily for Fairfax County Public Schools.  In addition to my commitment to improving student learning, I have demonstrated strong leadership and interpersonal skills.   My middle school experience will be particularly helpful to support students in the upper grades at Drew and to prepare them for the transition to secondary school.
