Hello, and welcome to my webpage!

This is my fifth year as principal at McKinley Elementary School. McKinley is a 4K-5th grade school with an amazing staff, involved parent network, and motivated, creative, and caring students. It is a wonderful place to grow and learn. At McKinley we were the first in the Wauwatosa School District to take on composting to help reduce landfill waste in our community. Now many schools have joined in. It is great to see students concerned not only about themselves and their families, but also their community and their world. 

As principal, it is an honor to be given the opportunity to continue the longstanding tradition of academic excellence with a dedicated professional staff who nurture the social, emotional, and academic needs of every child. I appreciate the insight and perspective of our community, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have wonderful news to share or a concern to express. 

Personally, I have spent my professional career in the Wauwatosa School District, with the first 19 years at Wauwatosa East--16 years as a teacher and 3 years as associate principal. Both of my children are Tosa East graduates, and my husband and I live in Wauwatosa. We believe in the Wauwatosa School District and in public education.  I see it as a privilege to serve the students of our community each day.
