Welcome to Knox Gifted Academy. I am honored and privileged to be the principal of KGA!

My Education and Professional Background

I have had the incredible opportunity to work in education for over twenty years and have served at both the school and district office levels. This will be my 7th year as an Elementary Principal in the Chandler Unified School District.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe in leading an environment where children learn and grow to their fullest potential academically, emotionally, and socially. I see my role as an advocate for students and faculty to support the demanding challenges for the future. At KGA, we will strive to provide a unique opportunity within the Chandler Unified School District for gifted students to experience a school-wide culture of community and collaboration. The teachers and faculty are specifically trained to provide problem-based learning with an interdisciplinary approach to best support our learners. A strong focus on 21st Century Skills, technology, and engineering are embedded in all aspects of the accelerated curriculum.
