• Welcome to East Elementary School!

    I am so excited to be joining the Administration team this year as Assistant Principal.

    I began working in this district in 2016 after moving from Sacramento, California where I taught 9 and 10 grade Language Arts in a co-taught classroom. Since I began in the Waynesville R-VI School District, I have taught 9th grade co-taught ELA, coached middle school girls basketball, and middle school track, been an aspiring administrator and an Administrative Intern at Freedom Elementary. While I started my career in secondary grade levels, I have truly enjoyed moving to elementary and getting to be a part of your children’s early years in education. 

    I believe that education is a powerful tool that can take your children anywhere they want to go; which is why I am committed to your students receiving a high quality education from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Please do not hesitate to reach out anytime with questions or concerns.
