Assistant to the Superintendent

My Background

I started my career at Parkland School District as a Physics and Mathematics teacher in the High School. I’ve always loved math and knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. Physics became my way of having fun with math! After teaching, I became the Assistant Principal at Northwestern Lehigh Middle School in Lehigh County. I found that I absolutely love the craziness of middle school! In 2008, I became their Principal, a role which I truly enjoyed.  In 2014, I became the Middle School Principal at Upper Perkiomen Middle School, working to build teaching teams and a positive school culture. Over my years in education, I’ve found that I have a passion for curriculum and instruction and working with staff toward continuous improvement in our classrooms and engaging students in learning. I’m excited to serve in the role of Assistant to the Superintendent at Perkiomen Valley and have appreciated the warm welcome that I have received.  Go Vikings!
