I am thrilled and honored to serve as an Assistant Principal here at Thomas Edison High School. I’ve served our school and school community for the past three years and look forward to many more in this new role.
This is my 16th year in education. I taught social studies for five years at two MPS contract alternative schools, eventually moving into a leadership position with the Metropolitan Federation of Alternative Schools (MFAS), a nonprofit that serves all the contract alternative programs in Minneapolis and St Paul.
In 2010, I joined MPS as a School Improvement Specialist, working directly with the leadership teams at the MPS contract alternative schools, the special education programs, and at Cityview, Broadway Alternative, and North Senior Academy.
In 2014, I was fortunate enough to move to Edison as our Data and Assessment Coordinator for two years. This current school year, I’ve had the great opportunity to coordinate Edison’s SHARP program (School Within a School credit recovery program).
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Minnesota, a Master in Teaching Degree from The Evergreen State College, and an Educational Specialist Degree from the University of St. Thomas. I am licensed in the State of Minnesota to teach 7-12 Social Studies and have my K-12 Principal license.
I LOVE being a Tommie! During my downtime, I love to read, play bass in a cover band, walk around the lakes, bike the Minneapolis bike trails, go out to eat, and hang out with my husband and our retired racing greyhound, Starr.
I look forward to continuing to serve our Edison community! Go Tommies!
