Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I am excited to be joining Thornton High School as part of the administrative team. I will be supporting or Student Relations team working with our Deans and Campus Supervisors to ensure that our school is safe and that our students are supported. I began my professional career as a special education teacher before transitioning to school administration. For the past 20 years I have had the honor of supporting schools as an assistant Principal or Principal in K through 12 settings.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Automotive Trade Technical Education from Ferris State University in 1985. I continued my post secondary education earning two Master's degrees. The first in Special Education with a focus on emotional development and the second in Educational Leadership from Grand Valley State University.
I look forward to supporting the wonderful families and students of the Adams 12 Five Star community.
