I am excited, honored, and blessed to be a part of such an extraordinary community of teachers, parents, and students here at Hart! I began my education career in McKinney where I taught 4th and 5th grade and served as an instructional coach and assistant principal. After moving to Colorado and working as an assistant principal at a middle school, I had the opportunity to become a principal and open a new elementary school. I then served as a middle school principal for six years. With most of my family living in the Dallas Metroplex and my daughter reaching school age, I was destined to return to a place I called home and join the Lovejoy ISD team. I served 2 years as an assistant principal at Willow Springs Middle School before coming to Hart.
This begins my fourth year as principal of Hart Elementary. I also have a daughter who is in the 4th grade here at Hart! As a mom, I get to witness first-hand the culture and community that makes Hart Elementary such an exemplary school. It is a school where staff and parents partner to create educational opportunities unique to each individual child. Because of this partnership, Hart is not simply a school where students are loved and love learning, but a place to learn grit, persevere and build community. It is a place to build self-confidence and show genuine respect for all. I am beyond thrilled to welcome our students and family to the best year yet at Hart!
