Dear Panthers,

    I am humbled, honored, and proud to serve as Assistant Principal of Unity Grove Elementary. Unity Grove is an amazing school with the best teachers, students, and staff.  It is a blessing and a privilege to be part of this wonderful family. My goal is to positively impact, inspire, nurture, and encourage as many students as I can. In order to do that, we must all work together to ensure each student has what he/she needs to reach their fullest potential.


    I have spent over sixteen years working in the field of education. I am certified in Early Childhood Education grades (P-5). I have also obtained my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as my Specialist in Curriculum, Instruction, Management, and Administration.  Additionally, I have both my gifted endorsement and my math endorsement.


    When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 13 years, and our 4 children. Being their mom, has had the biggest influence on me as an educator. I want every child to have a learning experience that I expect for my own children. That experience includes high expectations, rigor, engaging activities, and a safe, nurturing environment. I look forward to working alongside Mrs. Wilson, Dr. Walker, and the entire UGE staff. With our combined efforts, teamwork, and open communication, I am confident our students will thrive and take more chances.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to serving this wonderful community.  Let’s make this a great year.
