A Greeting From Our Principal:
I am beyond proud to be serving as Principal of Grayhawk Elementary School. Grayhawk is an incredible school and community and enjoys a reputation for being one of the best in Arizona. I am so excited to be joining this outstanding community of teachers, students, and families. It is my goal to ensure that everyone who walks through our doors feels welcomed, safe, supported, and cared for and I am committed to helping every student and staff member reach their fullest potential and be the best they can be.
This is my fifth year in Phoenix and the Paradise Valley Unified School District. I am originally from Tucson, but I began my career in education in Chicago, Illinois, where I primarily taught middle school social studies for about a decade. I loved Chicago: the city, the sports, the culture, and the communities, but a couple of winters worth of trying to put coats and boots on two small children was enough to bring us back to Arizona.
I began teaching in Paradise Valley at Pinnacle Peak Preparatory while I attended classes at Northern Arizona University, completing my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. My wife is also an educator in the Paradise Valley School District, and our children are both PV Schools students, so we are truly a proud PV family.
I am deeply honored to be serving as the Principal of Grayhawk Elementary School and working with this incredible group of educators, students, and families to continue the tradition of excellence that defines this school and community.
