Hello and welcome to Eagle Ridge Elementary School. I am excited to serve you as the principal here at Eagle Ridge. Please know my office is always open to all parents, students and community members. My goal is to have open communication to ensure the students attending Eagle Ridge, have the highest quality education possible.
I am a product of Paradise Valley Unified School District. I attended Mercury Mine, Shea Middle, and graduated from Shadow Mountain. At Northern Arizona University, I received my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. Upon graduation, I taught for one year near the city of Phoenix before I moved to Michigan. While in Michigan, I taught for 16 years. During this time I also earned my Master's in the Art of Teaching. Four years ago, my family decided it was time to move back to Arizona and soak up the sun. Upon returning to the district, I was a sixth grade teacher at Liberty Elementary. During this time, I went back to school to earn an endorsement in Educational Leadership. I also had the privilege of being a part of the district’s AIM program.
I have three children who are 13, 9, and 6. We are actively involved in the PV District and live in the community. My husband is a football coach at Shadow Mountain and my children are enrolled in the PV district. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have or to simply introduce yourself.
I am proud and honored to be a part of your child’s elementary school experience.
