Principal, Walnut Heights Elementary
This is my 4th year as a principal in the Walnut Creek School District. I'm so excited to work in a diverse community where we strive to engage, empower & inspire all learners. We care about 'the whole child,' which means academics, the arts, and social-emotional well-being. Check my @WalnutHeights_WC Twitter feed to see what's going on in our district and school, and also where I share interesting things related to education!I've been an educator in the Bay Area for 20 years. I taught in the Moreland & San Ramon School Districts before getting my MA in Educational Psychology (Gifted Education) and Administrative Credential. I spent 2 years as an assistant principal in San Ramon and thne worked for a year as the Dean at Woodside Elementary School. Prior to returning to Walnut Creek, I spent 9 years as a principal in the Los Altos School District.I'm thrilled to be here - to further our work with Responsive Classroom - and to make school a place where each student wants to come, every day.
