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.
I am incredibly excited to continue my second year as the Dean of Instruction at EAGLE College Prep’s campus here in the heart of Maryvale. As someone who oversees all instruction, curriculum, and assessments, I am here to ensure your scholar has the best learning experience possible. I am responsible for observing teachers and providing feedback in the areas of instruction, including weekly meetings to review student data so that we as a team can intervene when we see high areas of need for our scholars. This is my 12th year in education, second year with EAGLE, and eighth year in educational leadership. When I am not at work I love to hike these glorious mountains in the Phoenix Valley, and spend quality time with my two incredible sons.
I am a graduate of Central Michigan University (Fire Up Chips!) with an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Business Administration, a post-Baccalaureate Teaching Certificate in 7-12 Mathematics from Ottawa University, and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Arizona State University.
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.
