Current Assignment: School Counselor
This year will mark my twenty-first year in education. I taught 5th grade for 18 years at Douglas Elementary and am in my third year as Douglas Elementary's School Counselor. I am so excited to begin the new school year!
I am a firm believer that students should be taught to be lifelong learners. I want to help our students learn positive behaviors, encourage them to be goal-setters, and achieve a positive growth mindset.
I want the students to excel and believe that high expectations are the way to encourage our students to do their very best!
As part of my job, I am assigned a variety of duties that support or advocate for our students. I am the 504 coordinator. I also am the main contact for fifth grade students and parents who may be interested in applying for our Magnet School. If you have a student who is in our TARGET program, I will be the liason between our campus and the TARGET campus. Most importantly, I am here to support our students socially, academically, and emotionally.
