As I look forward to 2022-2023, I will be encouraging everyone to embrace change and keep a positive attitude. We are here for our students and want the BEST for them. It is my job to keep everyone safe and to ensure that students receive an excellent education.

This is my story:

I am a graduate from Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in Bilingual Multicultural Education. I have earned two Masters’ degrees – one in Curriculum & Instruction & one in Education Administration. I hold Ohio Department of Education licenses in Elementary Bilingual-Multicultural Education 1-8 and Administration K-8. Prior to becoming a principal I taught in Mexico, Texas and Ohio for many years in various grade levels. I have been a principal in A.A.C.S. for 19 years and love it!


We are Lakeside!
