I am so happy to be a part of the Veterans Elementary family. As parents, you already know from experience what a fantastic place this really is. The teachers, staff, students, and parents are committed to excellence and work as a team towards that end on a daily basis.
I am starting my 28th year in the district. I began as an English and Social Studies teacher at Norris Middle School. I eventually earned my Master's degree in School Counseling and served as an elementary school counselor for 5 years. I then obtained my Administrative credential and served as Vice Principal to the Middle School, Principal of William B. Bimat Elementary School, and Principal of Norris Middle for 6 years. I then served as the Administrator of Student Services for this great district for the past 4 years. Now, I have returned to Veterans Elementary to serve as counselor.
It is my belief, supported by my experience that all human beings would rather be successful than not and at peace rather than at odds with themselves or others. We all need guidance and support from caring people to recognize this and to come about our own plans to achieve this. As a counselor, I am just one member of this community to help our students grow every day.
If there is anything that I can do for you, or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to call or email me.
