Greetings Tarwater families! Welcome to Tarwater Elementary School! I am thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at Tarwater Elementary! It is an honor to be a part of the Tarwater family and community. I am eager to support our students, staff, and families to promote a positive learning environment.

My Education and Professional Background

My professional experiences at CUSD began in 2007 which includes teaching kindergarten and 4th grade as well as serving as the Dean of Students in an elementary setting. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (UOP), a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction (UOP), and a Master's Degree in Administrative Leadership/Principal Certification (Grand Canyon University). Additionally, I obtained my Early Childhood Endorsement, SEI Endorsement, and I have completed Spalding I and II. Furthermore, I am trained in DIBELS and Thinking Maps. In my free time I enjoy hiking, cooking, and camping with my family.

My Educational Philosophy

It is my belief that education should ignite a passion for learning in all students in a safe and nurturing environment. When this occurs, students can thrive and achieve their full potential which will prepare them for their academic future and beyond. Toros Together!
