What is it about education that you love so much? 
“It is an honor and privilege to be able to watch students grow and become a small part of their childhood. And the gleam in a student's eyes when they learn something new or achieve something they didn't think they could... it's just magical!”

What can the GOES community expect of you as their leader?
“At Grand Oaks Elementary, I will give 110% to this growing community, be strategic and innovative in my leadership, and lead from the heart. I promise to take good care of my dear friend, Mrs. Glenewinkel's school, and give the incredible staff my all!”

Thank you, Canyon Pointe Elementary community, from Mrs. Johnson.
“My Canyon Pointe Elementary family will always have a special place in my heart. Canyon Pointe has the very best teachers, students, and parents around! I can't thank you enough for how you've supported me over the past three years!”
