I have been at Norris School District since 2005.  I taught in the high school from 2005-2019, then served as the assistant principal in the elementary building from 2019-2021.  Starting in fall 2021, I will be the middle school principal.  I feel fortunate to be part of such a phenomenal school district and community.
