I couldn't be more excited to serve St. John’s Lane Elementary School as Principal for the 2019-2020 school year! It is a true honor and privilege to lead this extraordinary learning community. Our school’s proud history, traditions, and many strengths have shaped our outstanding reputation as we enter our 65th year of service to the students and families of this community. I see my role as Principal as a critical one in preparing our students for a successful future. I understand the responsibility I have to you in ensuring the academic success and social-emotional well-being of each and every one of our Jaguars and I whole-heartedly embrace this responsibility. My goal is to bring our school system’s Strategic Call to Action to life by ensuring student-centered practices, building inclusive relationships throughout our learning community, and implementing responsive and efficient operations of our school. You can expect me to work diligently with all stakeholders to make this happen. I believe that every student, regardless of their circumstance, deserves an engaging, rigorous, inclusive, and accessible learning environment where they can excel socially, emotionally, and academically. This lens has been shaped by my professional experiences as a teacher and administrator here in Howard County over the past 20 years. I spent 11 years in various teaching positions spanning grades K-5 at Stevens Forest Elementary, Bushy Park Elementary, and Longfellow Elementary.  Over the past nine years, I have served as Leadership Intern at Waterloo Elementary and Assistant Principal at Longfellow Elementary and Deep Run Elementary. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Bloomsburg University, an Advanced Certificate in Study in Instructional Leadership for Changing Populations from Notre Dame of Maryland University and hold Administration & Supervision I and II Certifications. My lens is also profoundly shaped by the incredibly important job of being dad of my two sons Luke (11) and Drew (8). I promise to make decisions on behalf of your children just as I would my own. When I am away from school, I am most likely spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy traveling, playing basketball, swimming, coaching my sons’ sports teams, and reading during my free time. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to serve our school and community as Principal. Please don't hesitate to contact me throughout the school year if I can be of service to your child or family in any way. It is going to be a great school year here at St. John’s Lane Elementary School!

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to each of you as we begin our new school year. It is with great pride and excitement that I begin my 4th year as Assistant Principal of St. John’s Lane Elementary School. As a staff, it is our commitment to uplift the Strategic Call to Action by ensuring that every student and staff member embraces diversity and possesses the skills, knowledge and confidence to positively influence the larger community. We want all of our students to experience a high-quality and well‑rounded education in a supportive and restorative culture that values connections, relationships and partnerships between home, school and the community. I received my Elementary Education Master of Arts Degree from Notre Dame of Maryland University, and my School Administration Master of Science Degree from John’s Hopkins University. This year marks my 17th year as an educator with Howard County Public Schools. I have taught at Deep Run Elementary, St. John’s Lane Elementary, and Cradlerock Elementary. I currently reside in Howard County where I enjoy spending time with my husband, three children, and my cockapoo Raven. When I am not at school, I participate in community service projects throughout the county. Also, I love to travel, dine out with friends, and watch football with my sons. I am thrilled to be a part of the wonderful, dedicated and devoted St. John’s Lane staff and community. My style is visible, accessible, and approachable at St. John’s Lane. I am truly looking forward to a great and productive school year!
