I am excited and honored to join the staff at Meridian in my new role as Assistant Principal. I am originally from Wisconsin, and moved to Denver 10 years ago. I have three children (Mackenzie, Christine, and Nathaniel) and a dog named Bailey. Before entering administration, I was a classroom teacher for 10 years. During my teaching career, I had the pleasure of teaching students at each of the different elementary grade levels. I was an academic and classroom management coach for 3 years, an elementary principal for 8 years, and an Assistant Principal for 4 years. I believe it is essential to meet students’ where they are; while holding high expectations to ensure academic success. Students will aim high when they are challenged and supported. I am passionate about equity and inclusion. I look forward to engaging with our students, meeting all of our families, and supporting our staff to be the very best we can be together.
