About Me

How many years have you been doing your job? How many years at Riffenburgh?: 

This is my third year as principal at Riffenburgh and it is such a privilege.  I love getting to be around all our wonderful students and families.  Before I was an administrator I taught kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 6th grade. 

What I love most about teaching is…: 

the individuality of each student that walks in the classroom.  I love getting to know each child at Riffenburgh!

My favorite children's book or author is...: 

Beautiful Oops is my favorite book and Patricia Polacco is my all time favorite author. 

My hometown is...: 

Pittsford, NY, since I spent a lot of my childhood there, but my birthplace is Aurora, CO.  

My Interests & Hobbies include...: 

camping, reading, and watching my kids play sports!
