Assistant Principal

It is my pleasure to serve the students, families, and staff of Mason Creek Elementary. I enjoy learning the new faces of the students and their special talents and strengths. I am very excited to be part of the Wolf Cub family.

I have worked in Douglas County School System since September 1993. Of course, I began my career as an elementary education teacher at Factory Shoals Elementary and then moved to Winston Elementary. I found great joy in the teaching of reading and language arts and was inspired to pursue a Masters of Education in Media programs. In 1998, I moved to Beulah Elementary to serve as the media specialist for 7 years. I began serving on the leadership team and discovered the joys of guiding staff members to improve schools and instruction for all students. With encouragement from my principal, I began studying Leadership and Supervision at The University of West Georgia. In 2005, I was named assistant principal at New Manchester Elementary and served the families and worked with a great staff for 7 years.  I have also served as assistant principal at Holly Springs Elementary and Factory Shoals Elementary and created great memories of each school. I have been honored to work with great staff and students over the years.

At Mason Creek, it been exciting to learn about the STEM Standards and the process for STEM School Certification. I am truly blessed to work with such a dedicated group of educators. Go Wolf Cubs!
