I am very proud to be a Firebird and work at a school that truly has a pathway to success for every student. I encourage every student to take advantage of everything that Willis has to offer so they leave here with a well rounded experience. I look forward to working with you and your student this year.
My Education and Professional Background
I hold a BA from the State University of New York, College at Cortland and a MEd from Northern Arizona University in Education Leadership. I have a combined 22 years in education as a teacher and administrator, with all 22 years working with this age group. I couldn't imagine working with any other age group as I find our students so enjoyable to help them find their ways.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
