    Dear Mildred Perkins Families,

    Welcome Back to School!  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Mildred Perkins Elementary School with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to support the students and families.

    I have been dedicated to the field of education for over twenty years!  I have worked with students ranging in age from TK through 8th grade in a variety of roles.  I have been a general education teacher, a TK-6th grade Instructional Coach, as well as an Assistant Principal.  I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Perkins Elementary to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

    I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Perkins Elementary this year and in the years to come.  Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students.  Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to meeting you soon!
