    I am delighted and honored to be the Principal Designee at Riggs Elementary and am very excited to get to all you.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I have been a dedicated educator for over 40 years. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from ASU and my Master’s degree from NAU. I taught for 20 years before venturing into school administration. I was an Assistant Principal for 4 years and a Principal for 16 years. I was the proud Principal at Haley Elementary School in CUSD for 13 years and retired from there 2 years ago. Currently I help the district with special projects and filling in for Administrators as needed.  

    My Educational Philosophy

    I believe that every child deserves a safe, welcoming and collaborative learning environment that fosters academic excellence and social emotional growth. I look forward to continuing the strong relationships with the Riggs families. I am committed to working closely with staff and PTO to continue our long-standing traditions at Riggs. Please know that I am only a phone call away and my door is always open. Every student has a special place on the Riggs Campus and our school will work tirelessly (they already do) to ensure success and growth for all.
