It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year at the Meadows! I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead this special neighborhood school; a place where children and adults alike thrive both academically and emotionally. New beginnings are always an opportunity for growth, and this year promises to be one that will support, challenge, and grow your child.

This new school year brings lots of change and I would like to take a moment and introduce myself as your building’s principal. While I am new to Stratton Meadows, I am not new to elementary education.

I come to Harrison School District 2 from a neighboring Colorado Springs school district with 19 years of experience as classroom teacher, instructional coach, district leader and assistant principal. With a passion for reading and writing, I have worked to create systems of success for students and teachers assuring reading growth and achievement in the classroom, building level. I am very excited to lead the dedicated and talented SME staff and knowing every panther cub will experience high levels of success this year.
I am dedicated to use my skills, knowledge, and experiences to support all of our Stratton Meadows Elementary parents, teachers, staff, and students to make this a thriving community of learners.

My team and I are thrilled to partner with you for the success of your child. Please know that your student’s success is our goal and we want to know if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s experience. Don’t ever hesitate to reach out by phone, text, or email, or make an appointment for an in-person conversation.
