This is my thirteenth year as principal of Belvedere, and it is my 21st year in FCPS. I am so proud of our school and feel so lucky to work with the Belvedere community. What I love most about working in an IB PYP School is seeing students’ love of learning and agency.
I like traveling, walks in the woods, and spending time with friends. I also love playing with my two grandchildren, Zachary and Eva.
I am an inquirer at heart, always seeking to learn and understand more. I am looking forward to growing and learning alongside our students and staff this school year.
This is my 4th year as an Assistant Principal at Belvedere and my 18th year in FCPS. Prior to being at Belvedere, I was an Instructional Coach and a classroom teacher. Belvedere is an amazing place to be, I am proud to be part of this community!
I love working at an IB PYP School and seeing students develop in to caring citizens, feeling a sense of belonging within their school community. As a school leader, I am inspired by the work of our staff to ensure that Belvedere is an inclusive school that makes learning exciting!
Outside of school, I love to spend time outdoors with my husband, Sebastian and our two sons, Matias and Cristhian. We love spending time in PA with my family on Lake Wynonah!
This is my first year as an Assistant Principal and my first year at Belvedere. I have been an educator for 16 years and have been a 2nd, 4th, 5th classroom teacher, math resource teacher, and instructional coach.
In my spare time I’m a big active kind of gal. Love to go hiking, biking, & walking and explore as many trails around town. I’m also a big fan of traveling and go on a big trip a year with my core group of college friends (12 of us from the University of Dayton…GO FLYERS). Oh, and I can’t forget about how I spend most of my time with my sidekick, Molly Boone, who’s 16.5 years old. She’s my hairy 4-legged daughter.
Working at an IB school is new to me, but everything I’ve learned and seen so far, aligns with what I love most about being an educator. Creativity, inquiry, and ownership! Boom!
2023-2024 is going to be a great year! Let’s do this Bulldogs!
