Welcome, Roadrunners! 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 a Master's Degree from Arizona State University in Curriculum and Instruction and later received a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I began my teaching career in 2002, and taught both primary and intermediate grades before moving into administration. My husband and I have two boys who attend schools in CUSD.

My Educational Philosophy

As an campus leader, it is my goal to support teachers and staff with 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 Riggs Roadrunners with the best education.
