    Assistant Principal (M-Z)

    I feel honored to be the Assistant Principal at Terrace Hills.  It is a privilege and joy to be working so closely with such an outstanding and dedicated school community.  I am committed to continuing the success of every child, both academically and socially. 

    I would like to share with you some of my roles as Assistant Principal.  I will be working with students with last names M-Z for grade placement, discipline, and ARDs.  I will also provide support and guidance to the following departments:   Math, Science, Special Education, PE, Keyboarding, and Art.   I am the administrator facilitating GT, grading, report cards, and progress reports.  As your assistant principal, I will work with our campus patrol, PEIMS clerk, attendance clerk, and bookroom clerk to address the needs of our students. 

    I began my vocation in education as a math teacher, led the math department for four years, and became the ALL at Terrace Hills.  My heart will always have the best interest of our children and staff.  Terrace Hills has become my family and in partnership with our teachers, staff, and community, I look forward to empowering our students to make a positive impact in our world through a strong education and a love for learning.
