I wanted to take the time to personally welcome you to Pearson Early Childhood! I am excited and honored to be joining the amazing Pearson staff and community as Principal for the 2018-2019 school year. I have a passion for early childhood education as well as building and cultivating relationships that support, encourage and inspire academic learning and social emotional growth for our youngest learners. I am committed to nurturing and growing a campus community that supports what is best for all children.
This coming year will mark my 10th year as an administrator and my 13th year in Plano ISD. Most recently, I served as the Assistant Principal at Saigling Elementary. Prior to becoming an administrator, I taught at Hedgcoxe Elementary here in Plano and at Townsell Elementary in Irving ISD.
Upon graduation from Nimitz High School in Irving, TX, I initially received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Southern Methodist University and spent time working in the field of Forensic Psychology. I received my Master of Education in Elementary Education from Texas A&M - Commerce and my Principal Certification from The University of Texas at Arlington. Through my years in education, I have had the privilige and opportunity to work at 7 different elementary campuses in Plano ISD.
I am beyond blessed with a supportive husband, Doug, and five wonderful children - Dakota, Brayden, Landry, Logan, and Audrey Anne - who keep my calendar full and my heart happy! We also have one very precious dog, Hallie, and a cat, Emi, that complete our family. I enjoy my time away from school boating, traveling, running, camping, and playing golf.
I am eager to get to know your child(ren) and am looking forward to partnering with you to help all students at Pearson reach their fullest potential. I know this will be a year of adventure and growth. I am here to assist and support you in every possible way. I look forward to a wonderful year learning and growing with the Pearson community!
