I have proudly been part of Countryside Montessori Charter School since 2005. I started as the Speech-Language Pathologist, and over time, acquired different responsibilities, eventually leading to Assistant Principal. In my role, my ultimate goal is to support students, staff, and families. To accomplish this, I strongly believe in building relationships and strong connections with those I serve.
While I began my career as a Speech-Language Pathologist working in private practice, I have always had a calling toward education. Once at CMCS, I obtained my Exceptional Student Education certification and began overseeing Student Services, including Section 504, English for Speaker of Other Languages, and interventions. This gave me a unique perspective of being able to see the whole child and how each component of their education fits together.
I’ve had the privilege of watching this school grow from 150 students, one building, and a handful of teachers, to what it is today. While we continue to change and adapt, we also hold on to our traditions and culture, the things that make CMCS stand apart from other schools.
I am the proud mom of two sons who both attended CMCS from 1st through 8th grades. Firsthand, I saw the strong foundation they were given and how that has set them up for success in high school and beyond.
