Welcome From the Assistant Principal

Hello El Mirage Families!

I am extremely excited to  continue as the Assistant Principal at El Mirage Elementary School. I graduated from Arizona State with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Secondary Education, go SUN DEVILS! I later received a Masters Degree from Northern Arizona University, go Lumberjacks! I began my educational career as a Social Studies and ESL teacher. I have also served as a Student Advisor and Dean of Students. The last sixteen years I have worked as an Administrator in Dysart Unified School District.  

I am ready to challenge our students and staff to meet our Mission: Tiger P.R.I.D.E. - Personal Responsibility in Daily Excellence.

I believe that each student deserves every opportunity to have the best education possibly, and it is our job as educators to provide this for them. We have high expectations for our staff and students and believe the sky is the limit to what we can accomplish. Tiger Pride is Campus  Wide!
