  • Biography:

    I am proud to serve for a second year as Assistant Principal of Busch Middle School of Character. Saint Louis Public Schools has been my home since 2010, and Busch since 2011. I taught 6-8 English Language Arts for 8 years and served as ELA Team Leader, followed by 3 years of teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). I have enjoyed collaborating with my colleagues to support students in Math, Science, Social Studies, English, and Special Education, and I have been happy to continue that work as a leader. In addition, I strive to support students in their well-being and growth, and help them through learning opportunities. I look forward to working with you and your family!

    When I’m not at Busch, I enjoy being at home with my family, spending time in my backyard gardening, and getting outdoors for a hike or camping trip. I love learning about history, politics, and social justice. I am continuously working to better how I contribute to anti-racism and equity in our school and community.
