Hello, Old Bonhomme Families!

I am looking forward to learning all about the Ladue Schools community. This year my main goal is to get to know and build positive relationships with the students, staff, and families of Old Bonhomme Elementary.

My activities will fall into three basic categories, and my approach to each of these is outlined in this document.

1. Listening and Learning

2. Building Positive Relationships

3. Leading

Mostly, I look forward to continuing to be part of the incredible Old Bonhomme Elementary family! I look forward to getting to know you all in the coming months.

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!  I am excited to begin my second year as the assistant principal at Old Bonhomme and Reed Elementary schools.  My goals for the school year are to connect with families more and continue building genuine relationships with students and staff at both schools.    

This year, I will celebrate 15 wonderful years in education.  I began my career in South Carolina as a 4th-grade teacher.  I have spent the past six years in various school districts in St. Louis County, teaching 4th and 6th grade.  Although I am a transplant, St. Louis is now home to my family and me. 

I am excited about the endless possibilities that the 2022-23 school year will bring. I can’t wait to celebrate our scholars’ success, both in and out of school.  I love connecting with families. Should you ever have a question or concern, do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to serving the Old Bonhomme and Reed communities again this school year!
