I understand personal responsibility. I have respect for myself and others. I conduct myself with integrity. I'm determined in all that I do. I believe in showing empathy toward others. I'm a lynx with P.R.I.D.E. !
As a longtime Valley resident and graduate of the MSBSD, I am so very excited to now be in the role of principal here at Meadow Lakes Elementary! My elementary years were spent being a Tanaina Timberwolf, middle school here as a Wasilla Middle School Brave, and high school at Wasilla High as a warrior. After graduating from the University of Idaho with degrees in Elementary K-8 and K-12 special education, I returned to my home state of Alaska. Not to age myself, but after spending over 10 years working within education, I was honored to be hired as an administrator.
My door is always open to students and their families. People have always complimented me on my ability to listen without judgment, resolve conflict with dignity and respect, along with advocating for the non-traditional struggling learner. I am so thankful for each and everyday that I am able to grow and learn through the interactions I have with students. My bucket is filled everyday by children. Education certainly chose me and I plan to remain a lifetime learner!
“When people think of themselves as successful, they succeed. When you believe in yourself, others tend to believe in you. When they see your self-confidence and positive expectancy about your goals, they believe in you and begin to accept your ideas.” – Paul J. Meyer
