Welcome Jamaica Families!  We are all very excited for the 2023-2024 school year, where classrooms once again will be filled with learning and activities that will inspire and grow our students.
I started my career in education with LHUSD 18 years ago at Starline Elementary School. After 13 wonderful years of teaching elementary students, I moved over to Thunderbolt Middle school and taught 7th and 8th grade math. For the last two years there, I served Thunderbolt in the role of Assistant Principal and Athletic Director. I am excited to begin my second year as the Principal at Jamaica Elementary. Throughout my years in education, I have also run travel clubs, been a facilitator for math competitions, and mentored many new teachers.
Lake Havasu City has been my home for the past 34 years, and I can truly say that I love this community.  I have raised my three children here and had the opportunity to foster over 40 children from the area. Now that my youngest son has graduated, I am a part-time empty nester.
I am looking forward to continuing the collaborative work with the incredible staff at Jamaica as well as connecting with our students and families.  I believe that the success of every student is a result of the partnership and teamwork between home and school. I am committed to continuing the tradition of excellence at Jamaica as well as exploring new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our students and their families.
We will have many ways for you to be a part of our Croc family this year.  Please consider joining our PTSO, Site Council, and/or joining in on all our fun activities throughout the year. 
Have a great rest of the summer and I look forward to meeting you in August and working with you throughout the year.
Feel free to reach out with any questions at (928) 854-7280 or email me using the link under my picture.
Crocs Rock!
