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 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 technology and instruction and in the global world of online learning. For the past eight years I have served as Director of iQ Academy Kansas and am now leading the school’s transition to Manhattan Virtual Academy.
In my time away from work, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my kids participate in their many school and extra-curricular activities. I love the outdoors and would love to spend a summer traveling abroad – someday!
