I am very excited to become part of the Willis Junior High School family! I will be working with our 7th grade students this year, so please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance with your child. It's going to be a great year!

My Education and Professional Background

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Denison University, Master of Social Work from Loyola University Chicago, and Doctorate in Educational Leadership (abd), University of Phoenix

My Educational Philosophy

I have spent much of my career as a School Social Worker and focusing on the social/emotional/behavioral aspects of learning. I believe that students do their best learning and achieve more when they are treated as whole children. I embrace the core values at Willis and I am confident that we are setting our students up for lifelong successes!
