I am a mom, wife, and the Assistant Principal at Arnold Elementary. I was born at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. We moved to Nebraska when I was still a baby. I grew up in Falls City, Nebraska. In 1990 I began teaching at Arnold when Dr. Dodds was principal. In 1996 I got married to my husband and in 1997 we began having our family. We have three children-my oldest child is a 13 year old girl and two boys, one is 10 years old and one is 8 years old. We have one cat, one dog, two guinea pigs and four fish. Our dog has only three legs. One of the most important people in my life, outside of my immediate family is my grandmother. She is going to be 95 years old. Our family loves the New York Yankees. I enjoy spending time with my family doing things like "family night", going on vacations, and having big birthday parties.
At Arnold we have high expectations in learning and behavior. I view student learning as the main focus of Arnold School and believe working together with staff, students, and families is the most effective way to accomplish increased student learning. I enjoy working with the Arnold staff, students, and families at Arnold Elementary and look forward to working together on the hard work at hand.
