As the principal of EAGLE College Prep-Maryvale, my goal is to provide your child with a positive and personalized learning experience in both academics and character formation. I have been in education for 14 years, which includes 10 years of classroom instruction. I spent most of my teaching experience in grades Kindergarten through third grade. I started at EAGLE as a first-grade teacher in 2015 and transitioned to administration as the Dean of Students in 2018, prior to becoming principal this past winter. I am passionate about helping every scholar become a well-rounded individual through academics and character development.
As the School Operations Manager at EAGLE College Prep Maryvale, my goal is to work diligently as part of a team with each scholar, family, and colleague with the purpose of giving them the best experience. Before becoming School Operations Manager, I had the privilege of teaching middle school math at EAGLE Maryvale for the past four years. Along with being a teacher, I was a team lead, mentor, dance teacher, and Girls on The Run coach. My passion is driven by our scholars and family culture. I enjoy time with my husband, daughter, and family. They give me purpose to keep pushing through and exceeding my own expectations. I am a graduate from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education Mathematics and will be pursuing my master’s degree in Educational Leadership.
As Dean of Students, my goal is to create and maintain positive and impactful school culture amongst our scholars, staff and families. Prior to working at EAGLE, I was a special education teacher and case manager for five years, varying from grades 3rd-12th. I am a Teach for America Philadelphia Alumni and received a Master's degree in elementary education from the University of Pennsylvania. I love getting to be a part of a school community and working together as a team to provide excellent and equitable education for all children.
