Principal

In 1993, I walked across the stage at UW-Madison with a BS in Mathematics Education.   That summer, Middleton-Cross Plains School District hired me to teach high school mathematics and develop MASH (Middleton Alternative Senior High).   For 5 years, besides teaching at risk students, I developed school policies, assisted students with their schedules and post-secondary plans, corresponded with parents, guardians and community programs.  My position included executing individual student contracts and conflict resolution.

After earning a Masters of Education in Learning Disabilities from UW-Madison in 2000, Mount Horeb High School’s mathematics department hired me.    While teaching Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II, I served as department coordinator, wrote curriculum, evaluated and purchased textbooks and interviewed new teachers.  Seven years later, when child number three became part of my future, I decided it was time to take a break from teaching.

When my children started attending school here at St Joe’s, I volunteered as a tutor.   This led to being hired to teach the three year old preschool followed by a move to 5th grade then 6th grade and now the principal position.  I have a passion for our school and look forward to the years to come.
