School of Education




I began my professional educational journey in Rockwood School District in 1992 after graduating from SIUE with my Elementary Education degree and certification.  I have served the district and community in a variety of roles throughout the years.  I taught second grade for 12 years where I inspired young minds every day.  As an Instructional Technology Specialist, I worked with elementary classroom teachers infusing technology into all curricular areas for five years.  I had the opportunity to experience various aspects of instructional leadership working with administrators, teachers, support staff, students, and community members providing staff development, supporting the curriculum and facilitating the RITTS program.  I have served the Rockwood School District in the role of Assistant Principal for the past eight years.  Being an administrator has been my favorite and most rewarding position in my educational career; I feel that all of my strengths are being utilized to the fullest daily! 

I completed all of my graduate work at Webster University.  My MAT in Communication Arts was completed in 1995 and I then earned my Ed. S. degree and certification in 2004.  My post graduate work as well as the Rockwood Administrative Leadership Development Program provided a strong foundation for my instructional leadership and visionary skills while nurturing my desire to be a life-long learner.  My passion for technology and character education led me to pursue national eMINTS and L.A.C.E. (Leadership Academy for Character Education) certifications. 

Currently, I serve as an adjunct professor at Webster University teaching two master level classes each year.  I have been an adjunct professor at Webster for the past eight years. These experiences have afforded me the chance to further develop my instructional leadership skills.  I love working with the dynamic students at Webster University.  They challenge me, give me inspiration and stretch me to continually grow as a leader and educator.
