I’m so excited to join the Kooken family where our commitment is to ensure parents that when they walk through the doors of our school, they will feel the excitement of learning that is taking place, and the passion we have in preparing all students for success. Working together, we will ensure that each child feels valued and is educated in a safe, nurturing, and academically rich learning environment. This is my 25th year in education and what an awesome journey it’s been! My many years of experience in early childhood classrooms and as a Language Arts Instructional Specialist have equipped me with the knowledge, commitment, compassion, and vision needed to design for learning in order to prepare students for the 21st century. I look forward to this new journey as a Kooken Koala.
