I am honored and excited to serve as the new principal of Celina Junior High! I am passionate about serving our students and families in order to provide the very best educational experience! In my 20 years in education, I have enjoyed teaching at the elementary, middle, and high school levels and serving as assistant principal on an elementary campus for 3 years and a middle school campus for 2 years, helping to open a new middle school campus last year. I am married to my husband of 25 years, and we have 5 children and 2 dogs. Our family moved to Celina in 2012, and we love this community that is strong in values and rich in tradition. Having been a part of Celina ISD as a parent, I have seen what an amazing district this is and am thrilled to be a part of the CISD family!
The staff at Celina Junior High is committed to serving our students to help all students learn at high levels and develop transferable skills that they can apply throughout their lives. The positive, supportive, cooperative environment at CJH makes it a safe place for students to challenge themselves, take academic risks, and learn from mistakes. I believe that we grow when we are challenged, and it is important to challenge students so that they learn to persevere and accomplish more than they thought possible while maintaining a balance that is essential to social-emotional well-being.
I appreciate your trust and support and look forward to getting to know our students and families. I always strive to treat each child the way I would want my own children to be treated. I look forward to a great year!
