Welcome, Ryan Royals! I am so excited to be your Dean of Students this year. I look forward to meeting your family.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from the University of Arizona (Go Cats!) with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I received my first Master's Degree from Arizona State University in Curriculum and Instruction. I received my second Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University in December 2019. I started teaching in 2002, and taught both primary and intermediate grades.

My Educational Philosophy

As an instructional leader, it is my goal to coach teachers and staff on instructional best practices and student engagement strategies, as well as to model exemplary behavior for students and staff. I believe that parents play a critical role in their children's education, and look forward to working side-by-side with families to provide our Ryan Royals with the best education.
