Oak Crest Elementary Principal's Page

I am so excited to begin my sixth year as Principal of Oak Crest Elementary! We continue our journey of Professional Learning Communities, data driven dialogue, and the emphasis of student learning and growth!

I grew up in West Fargo, ND, graduated with my Bachelor's of Arts from Augustana College (now Augustana University) with an Elementary Education Major and a Spanish Major. I then moved out to Colorado and was a bilingual 3rd grade teacher for 5 years. During that time I received my principal's license and Master's in Educational Administration and Policy Studies from the University of Denver. The opportunity arose for new learning in leadership positions. I was an Assistant Principal of K-8 School for two years and then the last 4 years I was principal of a building that I had the pleasure of opening as a new building. In June of 2011, I graduated with my PhD in Educational Administration and Policy Studies from the University of Denver.

It is an honor for me to lead this community of learners of both students and adults at Oak Crest Elementary. I look forward to the learning that will take place at Oak Crest for every child, every day! Our mission at Oak Crest Elementary is Expecting Excellence from Everyone, Everyday!

Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I encourage you to stop by the office or give us a call @ 952-873-2402.
