Greetings Ellis Community, I am very excited to begin my third year as the Ellis Elementary School Principal. Prior to my principalship at Ellis, I served three years in the role of Instructional Superintendent (IS), where I worked in support of school leaders and school communities in northwest Denver. Before serving as IS, I was an Elementary School Principal at Gust Elementary School in southwest Denver for eight years.
My educational career began in secondary schools, as a middle school English and Math Teacher. Additionally, I worked as a Student Advisor for several years and as a middle school Assistant Principal for four years in support of teachers, students and families.
On a personal note, in addition to serving DPS as an educator, I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. Our son is a firefighter married to a 5th Grade Elementary School Teacher, and we have three grandchildren aged 11, 9, and 3! I love spending time with them, and I am so lucky to have them living nearby in Peyton, Colorado.
