Hi! I am so excited when looking to the future of Manhattan Virtual Academy! How did I acquire the privilege to serve as the Principal of MVA? It comes from growing and developing as an educator in a community where education is a priority, and the school district is a leader in education in Kansas.
I have lived in Manhattan, Kansas for over 30 years, graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, a Reading Specialist endorsement, and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Administration. My teaching experience has been at all levels, Kindergarten through High School. My leadership and administrative experience has been in instrucitonal technology and in the global world of online learning. For the past 15 years I have served as Director of Manhattan Virtual Academy.
In my time away from work, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, kayaking, and spending time with my family.
