I absolutely love working at New Lothrop Elementary School! We have great students, an incredible staff, supportive parents, and a very involved community. All of those qualities are the backbone to a strong school. I am so proud to be able to see Hornet PRIDE here on a daily basis!
On a personal level, I grew up in the Flint area. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Elementary Education, and an emphasis in Early Childhood Education, Social Studies, and Language Arts. I obtained my Masters in Professional Leadership from Regis University, in Denver, Colorado. Before I had the pleasure of working here, I was an Assistant Principal for three years in Colorado. I also taught in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade in the Denver area for seven years prior to that.
I married my college sweetheart in 2004. After we got married, we moved to Colorado for a 10-year adventure before we decided to come back home to Michigan, so he could help with the family business. We've enjoyed being back! We love to try new restaurants and recipes, travel, scuba dive, and play with our kiddos- Britton and Paisley.
New Lothrop has been a great place to continue my career. I have felt very welcomed here and I love learning right along with our students.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
