Welcome to Ryan Elementary! At Ryan, we pride ourselves in creating an environment where ALL of our students feel loved, challenged, and successful!

My Education and Professional Background

I actually began my study in the field of sports medicine before I changed to an education major. I had a strong passion to work with students and make a difference in their lives which lead me to my Bachelor's degree in Education from Arizona State University. I then went on to pursue my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University, knowing that one day I would love to lead a school community. Before this principalship, I taught at the elementary and middle school level for 8 years before becoming a Dean of Students and then an Assistant Principal in the Chandler Unified School District.
