“My vision for Oregon Connections Academy is to foster an environment and culture that will ensure the success of each and every student. We have an amazing team of teachers and staff that work together to support students wherever they are academically and to help them strive for academic excellence.
I will always be a teacher at heart, having taught in both traditional and online classrooms. My passion for teaching and learning online has grown into a sincere belief that students’ education can truly be enhanced and elevated in an online classroom.
I started at ORCA in 2008 as a middle school language arts teacher. I served as elementary school assistant principal and then as principal for kindergarten through eighth grades. During this time, I have been fortunate to help develop some of the innovative practices we have established to assist students in achieving their highest potential. I am excited to lead our school and will continue to drive and foster an environment of collaboration, high expectations, and doing whatever it takes for our students.”
