    Dear CA Students and Families,

    It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed

    Assistant Principal of CA. I am honored to serve in this role,

    and am eager to see each student grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Although I may

    not see you in the building during the start of the school year, I will “Zoom” into your virtual

    classes to say “Hello”. Despite the uncertainties and limitations during this time, I plan to work

    closely with Principal Griffin to make this a great school year.

    I have spent most of my professional career working with high school students. I taught Special

    Education courses at Sumner High and English Language Arts at Innovative Concept Academy

    (ICA). I also served as the principal of ICA before joining Clyde C. Miller Career Academy as

    the assistant principal. Not only have I served in teaching and leadership roles within the

    district, I am also a proud graduate of SLPS. I graduated from Vashon High School many, many

    years ago and truly cherish the opportunity to give back to the St. Louis Public Schools


    My decision to become an administrator came from a strong desire to make a positive impact on

    an entire school community. As the mother of two girls, ages 9 and 22, I understand the

    importance of child development and creating a plan to meet the unique needs of all students. As

    the assistant principal, I will work diligently with our faculty and staff to carry out the vision and

    mission of Carnahan School of the Future. I believe that as a school, we play a fundamental role

    in positioning students for future success. I am committed to working closely with students,

    teachers, parents, and community members to ensure that all students achieve their full potential

    and are prepared for the next phase of their educational journey.

    I can’t wait to meet each and every one of you in person. If throughout the course of the year you

    have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email. I can be reached at


    Wishing you and your family a safe and healthy school year!
