Greetings Cougar Families and Friends! Welcome to my page. I am excited and honored to be the Assistant Principal at Crane Middle School and look forward to continuing my work with Mr. Tyree, Mrs. Neumann, as well as the rest of our staff, in our efforts to do whatever it takes to advance the achievement of all students on our campus. I am confident that we will continue providing students with a challenging and enriching school experience.
This is my 25th year working in public education and my 17th year in Crane. After spending 12 years teaching grades K-4, I was a Peer Evaluator for Crane's pay-for-performance program for 8 years, a Professional Development Coach for 2 years, and am in my 4th year as Assistant Principal. An interesting fact is that I was a student in Crane schools from 1st-8th grade! I am a native of Yuma and earned my Master's Degree in Bilingual/Multicultural Education, and my teaching and administrator certification through Northern Arizona University in Yuma.
My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is safe and respectable so all students can learn and grow academically and socially. I love what I do and look forward to coming to work every single day! Feel free to stop in and say hello when you are on campus. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.
