Dear Desert Springs Preparatory Families,
It is with great honor that I begin the 2016-2017 school year as the new principal at DSpES. I am excited
for the opportunity to serve the students, families, staff and community in continuing our path of student success while also fostering a love for learning.
I am a native to Arizona and grew up in both Phoenix and Cave Creek. I received my undergraduate degree from Arizona State University in Elementary Education and later, a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and in Human Relations from Northern Arizona University.
At Desert Springs Preparatory we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our students, along with a quality education where we celebrate students’ successes. We pride ourselves in high expectations for student learning with a focus on Core Knowledge, technology integration, and instructional strategies that support the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards. As your Principal, I am committed to building strong relationships with our students, families, staff, and community partners.
I believe it is important for us to work together and I value your support and involvement here at DSpES. Please do not hesitate to come speak with me regarding any concerns or suggestions.
