I am the proud principal of Tarwater Elementary. Tarwater is a very special place where caring adults work hard to bring out the best in every child. We encourage you to be involved in our very connected community and see for yourself what we know to be Toro True!

My Education and Professional Background

I began my teaching career in 1990 in the Tempe School District. I moved to Chandler Unified Schools in 1994 and taught for 12 years at Andersen and Humphrey Elementary Schools. I left the classroom to work in curriculum development and professional development of teachers. I learned to love impacting student learning by empowering and teaching teachers. As the Assistant Director of Gifted Education and Dual Language Immersion, I worked to develop and implement innovative programs for CUSD. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to bring all of my experiences to Tarwater and continue to learn from such an outstanding community and staff.

My Educational Philosophy

Learning is a natural phenomenon. Providing students with the tools, the environment and a reason to be curious is the job of the educators.
