Welcome to Falling Creek Elementary, where education is a team effort which focuses on quality programs and excellent teaching. I have been involved in public education for many years. Several of my favorite years have been with Chesterfield County Public Schools. I continue to enjoy being the Instructional Leader at Falling Creek Elementary because of the great people and children I am able to interact with day to day.
I was born in Richmond, Virginia. I am a graduate of Morgan State University, Baltimore Maryland and hold a Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University. I am married and have one son.

I am overjoyed to be the Dean of Falling Creek Elementary, home of the Panthers!  What a privilege it is to be part of such a rich and diverse learning community with incredible students, families, and staff!  I have served in education for almost 30 years, from first grade teacher to the instructional leader of the adult ESL program in CCPS.  I have been married for 27 years and have four children.  With a B.S. in Education from Virginia Tech, an M.Ed. in Counseling from George Mason University, and an Educational Leadership Certificate from University of Richmond, I come to Falling Creek with a desire to serve with excellence every day.  Every child can succeed, and we have the best teachers and parents to make that happen.  Let’s go, Panther Family!
