I celebrated my one year anniversary at Whiting in July and even though I am still learning about the community, I consider myself an Oiler! I appreciate how the community puts kids first and how teachers and staff strive for excellence believing that every student can be successful in reaching his potential.
With that in mind, I attended professional development and read several educational books this summer to prepare for 2017-2018. This year I look forward to working with staff on increasing student achievement and integrating technology to enhance student learning. I will do my best to work with staff to support the School City of Whiting’s vision to provide opportunities for students to collaborate, to create, and to engage in their world while developing digitally responsible citizens, risk takers, and problem solvers of the future.
I hold a bachelor’s degree from Northern Illinois University, a Master’s in Educational Administration from Indiana University and an Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University. I have been in administration for 13 years at the building and central office level.
