Principal's Message

Posted on: November 3, 2017

Dear Monfort Heights Elementary Families,

I am so pleased to be joining the Monfort Heights team! I am looking forward to working wit you throughout the remainder of the school year and for many years in the future. I have been visiting classrooms and am greatly enjoying getting to know the staff and students. The Monfort Heights Musketeers have been very welcoming. I am so glad to be a member of this amazing school community.

I believe in high standards for all students and want to see all of our students become successful-both in their education and life. I believe it is essential for families and schools to work together for the benefit of all students. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any ideas/concerns that you may have.

My journey to Monfort Heights has given me a great deal of experience in education. I have been working in education since 2001. Ten of those years were spent as a classroom teacher in West Clermont Local Schools. During my time in the classroom, I had several principals who encouraged me to go into administration. After my time at West Clermont, I spent two years as an Assistant Principal at Lakota Local Schools. I the summer of 2016, I was selected to be the principal of Houston Early Learning Center here in the Northwest Local School District. When I was asked to join the MHE team, I knew it was time to return to the world of elementary schools. Most of my career has been at the elementary level, and I have also had the privilege of being a former adjunct professor guiding future teachers through their mathematics practicums, I have worked with students from ages 3 through 50 plus.

Once again, I am so glad to be joining the MHE team and look forward to working with all of you!
