Welcome to the Hawk family! This is my first year with CTA Independence as the Assistant Principal. I look forward to a phenomenal year and getting to know everyone! When you see me on campus, please take time to introduce yourself.

My Education and Professional Background

I hold a BAE in Elementary Education from Arizona State University with a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. The first few years of my teaching career I was a kindergarten teacher at a private school and a 2nd grade teacher in downtown Phoenix. I moved to Legacy Traditional School in Maricopa where I taught Spalding and Saxon in a traditional setting, as a 1st grade teacher. I moved to the assistant principal and after a year was promoted to the principal role at the LTS-Chandler campus, which I was there for the past 7 years. I’m now starting the next professional chapter of my life here at CTA Independence. I reside here in Chandler with my husband Ryan, our son Kaiden (5 years old), and son Gabrien (infant). Kaiden will start kindergarten here at CTA Independence, which we are very excited about! As a family we enjoy watching sports and spending time outdoors.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that it takes a village to educate our children. With good communication and a solid partnership between home and school, every child will be successful. Children need to be provided the opportunity to think critically while feeling comfortable in their learning environment.
