I absolutely love being a member of the Jacobs Road Elementary School family! I am starting my fourteenth year as an elementary school principal, and my third year as principal of Jacobs Road. Overall, I have been an educator for over 24 years. I’ve attended Virginia Tech, George Mason University and Johns Hopkins University, earning a B.S. in Psychology, an M. Ed. in Special Education, and a post-masters in Administration and Supervision. I am currently pursuing my doctorate from Virginia Tech.
My husband, Brad, and I have five children: Maddie (20), Mallory (18), Jack (16), Britt (14) and Maryn (13). Our oldest daughter is at Virginia Tech, the college where I met her dad. We are a huge VT family, and we love our HOKIES! We are hopeful that our daughter Mallory will be able to begin at JMU in the fall, so I can also start cheering “Go Dukes!” When I’m not at work or working on my dissertation, I like to spend time with my family and friends, read a good book, check out a good movie, or watch The Voice!
I truly love my job, and I believe my purpose is to support students, families and teachers. Your children will quickly become my children in my heart! It is a great honor to be trusted by you to take care of your baby! I will always do my best to work hard and partner with you to make sure that Jacobs Road is the BEST place to grow and learn!
