|"Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is about opening the heart and inspiring others."|

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school. Every day when students walk through the doors of Jacobson Elementary, they are entering an environment that is rich in tradition and set up for student success and support. Our school is filled with opportunities for students to excel so they can be proud and work at their personal best. Jacobson Elementary is a place where students love to learn and grow together.
My Education and Professional Background
In 1996 I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and an undergraduate degree in Child Psychology from NAU. In 2000 I earned my post degree certification from NAU and then a masters in Educational Leadership from ASU. I began my journey as a school administrator eleven years ago -- first as an assistant principal and then as a principal.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child is a unique individual who requires a caring, safe, and challenging learning environment where they can grow socially, emotionally and academically. It is my obligation as school Principal to foster a school learning environment rich in meaningful learning experiences. Our school will also provide a safe, caring environment where each child can blossom and grow. The Jacobson staff works hard to teach children to become responsible for themselves as well as their own learning.
