Welcome to Lafayette Elementary School! I am proud to be the principal of this thoughtful, engaging, and kind community of learners. 2023 - 24 marks my second year as principal of LES. I began my journey in the Lafayette School District in 2015. At LES I taught third grade for three years and then was the school Reading Specialist for two years. I had a unique role for two years, serving as a part-time Assistant Principal at Springhill and the rest of my time I worked closely with the Assistant Superintendent to support teachers with curriculum and instruction. Before my time in Lafayette I worked as a Reading Specialist and Literacy Coach in San Francisco Unified for five years. I started my career in the Boston area as a fifth and sixth grade teacher. I truly enjoy elementary school and I know the enormous responsibility that comes with supporting our young learners academically, socially and emotionally.
Personally, I have lived in the Bay Area for thirteen years, but I am a Connecticut native. I attended college at Boston University for my undergraduate studies and then Lesley University in Cambridge, MA for my Masters in Reading. I earned my Administrative Services Credential at St. Mary's College in Moraga. I live in Lafayette with my husband and two kids who also attend Lafayette schools. I truly enjoy living out here in the Bay Area and appreciate all that it has to offer.
I hope that you come to love and appreciate the LES community as much as I do. I look forward to our partnership as we work together to support our students. You have landed in a truly special community!
