Welcome to Beverly Elementary! I would like to extend a warm welcome to both our new and returning families. Our school has a legacy of providing an excellent education for each child in a positive and caring environment. Since our opening in 1988, Beverly Elementary has been recognized as an Exemplary School, as well as being recognized as a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education in 2006. Most recently, Beverly continues the success by earning Texas Education Agency’s Distinction Designations in all eligible categories for Academic Achievement in Reading/ELA, Mathematics, Science, Student Progress, Closing Performance gaps, and Postsecondary readiness. Additionally, Niche.com ranked Beverly Elementary #7 in Best Public Schools in Texas.
It is an honor to be a part of this great community! I find it a great joy and privilege to work with children. This is my thirtieth year in education, and I have enjoyed each experience. I am a graduate of the University of Texas, Austin. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, and Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with an Administrator Certification. Most of my teaching career has been in Plano ISD where I have taught third, fourth and fifth grades, along with serving as Team Leader. As an Assistant Principal, I was afforded a wide range of experiences throughout the district. This year I am celebrating eight years as Principal in Plano ISD.
My husband and I grew up in the area and have been married for seventeen years. Our daughter will be a student in fifth grade at Beverly. As an educator and parent, I strive to provide an environment where each child feels loved, respected, and challenged to grow academically and socially. I want to prepare all students for the future, by teaching them to think critically, communicate effectively, collaborate well with others, and to ultimately be positive contributors in our community.
Your partnership is welcome! At Beverly, we value your support and participation in providing an excellent education for your child. I encourage you to join PTA and serve as a volunteer. I look forward to knowing each child and family as we continue with another successful year at Beverly Elementary!
