I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be the principal of Grandview Elementary.  At Grandview, I assure you will find academic growth and memorable moments for your child.  Being the mother of three children myself, I know how important your child’s happiness and success are to you.  Please know that your child’s safety and well-being are of utmost importance to me and the staff at Grandview.  To that end, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at any time.  As principal, I am committed to making sure that our students succeed to their highest potential.  This can only be achieved in partnership with parents, staff, and students. 

I have more than 25 years of experience in education.  I have had the privilege to serve as a Classroom Teacher, a Math & Science Curriculum Coordinator & Instructional Coach, and a Middle School Dean of Students before becoming Principal at Grandview in 2014.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Education from Grand Valley State University and a Master of Education in Curriculum, Instruction, & Leadership from Oakland University.  I am dedicated to ensuring success for ALL students.
