“I am blessed to be a part of the North Hart Navigator family. The students, parents, teachers and staff make our school a special place to learn and grow together. My favorite part of being a principal is getting to see our students explore and build knowledge, as they engage in learning tasks that are designed to meet their needs and challenge them to be their best. There is nothing better than seeing their sweet smiles and receiving warm hugs every day. It is my goal to help everyone achieve their personal best and develop a lifelong love of learning. I can’t wait to see all that we can accomplish this year. Together, we will exceed expectations!”

"I consider it an honor and privelege to be the assistant principal at North Hart Elementary School. I am looking forward to making new relationships with teachers, students, parents, and stakeholders to better meet the needs of the students. I believe it takes all of us working together to help mold and meet the needs of each student we encounter. I encourage parents to come to school, meet us, talk to us, join PTO, and volunteer your time and energy. Your involvement will show the kids of North Hart how much you care, and how much education is valued."
"I consider myself very fortunate to be a team member of the North Hart Navigators. In this new position, there is not a lot I can promise, but here is what I can promise: North Hart will get every ounce of effort from me. I will be dedicated to the North Hart family and will work diligently to ensure that I provide the best educational opportunities for the students. I challenge all of you to ensure that each endeavor we take on this year to do it with pride and excellence so we can lead our community to success."
