Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Lakewood Elementary School. I am happy to be serving as the principal of this friendly community school. I have been in education for over 28 years serving as a teacher in regular and special education, and now I have the privilege to lead Lakewood as principal.
I consider myself a Michigander even though I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have lived in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area since 1986. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education in 1989, a husband in 1990, and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood in 1996. My learning did not stop there as I began my doctorate program in Urban Education in 2010. I earned my Education Leadership certificate in 2014.
Besides learning, I love to golf, travel, and spend time with my family. I enjoy music- playing my guitar, piano, and accordion. I am a big fan of sports, especially Wolverines, Tigers, and Red Wings.
I am very happy to be a part of the Lakewood community, Home of the Lakewood Lizards!
