Dear Elliott Parents and Students,
I am so excited to join the dynamic team at Elliott. I have heard amazing things about the staff and students and I can’t wait to meet everyone. This will be my fifth year as a principal, with seven years teaching experience prior to that. I have taught in elementary classrooms in England, New Zealand, and Michigan. I am a proud alum of Northern Michigan University and Michigan State University. I hold a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Teaching.
I look forward to returning to the Lansing area with my family after having been away for the past four years. My family includes my husband Matt and our three children, Harper, Caden, and Arlee. We are all Michigan State fans, but none more so than our dog, appropriately named Leonidas. He loves to walk around campus and get attention on game days.
Personally, I love to travel, most recently to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics, or small road trips around Michigan. I also love to read, and to watch musicals.
I am looking forward to meeting all of the Elliott students and their families! Feel free to stop in to introduce yourself. My first day at Elliott will be October 7th. If there is anything I can do for you, feel free to contact me at any time.
