What made you interested in the CES position? 
“I am fortunate to have the opportunity to rejoin #TeamTomball as the Principal at Creekview Elementary.  Having previously served as an elementary principal, I enjoyed watching both the learning and growth of students during their elementary years.  Watching students enter as kindergarteners and leave as future middle schoolers is extremely fulfilling. As educators at the elementary level, we play a critical role in building the foundation for all future learners.  It is exciting to be a part of Creekview’s Vision of ‘Promising GREAT learning for ALL!’”

What are you looking forward to about serving the Creekview community?
“The Creekview community is truly one of a kind!  I am looking forward to building relationships with the students, parents, teachers, and staff.  The level of involvement from the community is absolutely phenomenal, and without a doubt, attributes to the high levels of success at Creekview.”

What makes being a campus leader so special?
“Being a campus leader is special because of one word … responsibility.  As campus leaders, we are responsible for every student, every teacher, and every staff member.  As a mom of a kindergartener and a three year old, this level of responsibility is not something I take lightly.  Parents send their children to school with high expectations of learning and we as leaders have to ensure we are not only meeting, but exceeding these expectations.  Leaders set the tone and ultimately the heartbeat of the campus.” ​
