Soaring to Success - Where Everyone Matters

Meet the Principal

a Message from our principal

Dear Queen Creek Elementary Community,

I am thrilled to be a part of the team at Queen Creek Elementary and to have the opportunity to serve the students, families, staff, and greater Queen Creek community. I look forward to continuing the rich tradition of success at Queen Creek Elementary and to be a part of a district that is growing and innovating in exciting ways with each passing year.

My entire professional life has been devoted to serving students and their families through public education with 22 years of experience as a teacher, program director, assistant principal, and principal in schools outside of Boston, Massachusetts and more recently in the east valley in Arizona. My husband is also a teacher and coach, and we have two children who are the lights of our lives. Keilani is entering 3rd grade while Kainoa is in preschool. When I’m not working, my little ones certainly keep me busy. 

I am committed to partnering with you and the teachers and staff at Queen Creek Elementary to provide the best educational and social experience possible for your children. I believe strongly that all students want to learn and all students are capable of learning at a high level. At Queen Creek Elementary, we will work tirelessly to provide students with the academic, social, and emotional support they need to grow and thrive as learners and people. 

Please don’t hesitate to stop by, call, or email me at any point.
