Connect With Us

Welcome!

Welcome to Jacobson, home of the Jets! As your assistant principal, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new families and welcome back our returning families. Jacobson Elementary School is an exceptional place to grow, learn, make new friends, and have fun! We also have a supportive and involved community that I absolutely love being a part of. I am eager to see everyone in July and begin another fantastic school year.

My Education and Professional Background

I hold a BA degree in Speech Communications and Public Relations, a master's degree in Elementary Education, and a master's degree in Educational Leadership. After four years at Baylor University, completing my undergrad and playing softball, I moved back to Arizona to pursue a career in education. I returned to the desert, earned my degree, and began teaching. I have been fortunate to have taught multiple grade levels over the years, including kinder, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. During these 12 years of teaching and coaching middle school athletes, I felt the need to connect with students, families, and teachers in a different capacity and completed my leadership degree. The 2021-2022 school year will be my fourth year in administration and my third year as Jacobson's assistant principal.

My Educational Philosophy

At the core of all learning are relationships. I believe that students can and want to succeed in their learning, and that it is up to us as educators, to first and foremost, connect and build relationships with all students. Once a relationship of trust is earned, quality instruction, based on individual student need, is designed to help students reach their full academic potential. It is important for students and families to feel part of a school environment that supports academic, emotional, and behavioral growth.
