Professional Experience: I was employed by the City of Carson, California in the Special Interest Dept. as the assistant coordinator for Fine Arts related events. I become a teacher in early education for grades Kinder and first, as well as the K-8 grade music teacher for St. Lucy Catholic School prior to relocating to Tucson, AZ. I taught first and second grade at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic School before transitioning into the administrative role. I served as Assistant Principal for two years at St. John the Evangelist Catholic School prior to becoming the Principal in the 2016-17 school year. I was blessed with the opportunities to collaborate with other teachers and administration within the Diocese of Tucson on various curriculum related projects and training.
Hobbies and Interests: I am also a professional musician. I enjoy spending as much time with my family. We love to spend our time reading as a family and going on excursions. Health and nutrition is very important to me. I love to run and weight lift.
Dear Staff and Families,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of St. John the Evangelist Catholic School for the 2016-2017 school year. I possess over fourteen years educational experience spanning grades K-8 with a specific concentration in multiple subject elementary education, K-8 music education, and curriculum and instruction planning. My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by two years of successful leadership as an Assistant Principal here at St. John. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son/daughter’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at St. John by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will focus on strengthening our Catholic identity, 21stCentury skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted student led conferences and Academic Parent Teacher Training (APTT), and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.
I anticipate a most successful year as St. John teachers and staff support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child.
During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of St. John the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be faith filled citizens ready to master the challenges they will encounter on their journey towards ‘College and Heaven’ with a solid foundation created here at our school. As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet! I look forward to working with you and your child.
United in Christ,
GOD IN ALL THINGS

Estimados Padres de Familias y Personal de la Escuela,
Con gran orgullo y emoción escribo esta carta para presentarme como la recién nombrada directora de la Escuela Católica San Juan el Evangelista para el año escolar 2016-2017. Tengo más de catorce años de experiencia educativa en los grados de K-8 con una concentración específica en la enseñanza en diferentes materias en primaria, en clases de música con niños de K-8, y en la preparación de planes y programas de estudios. Mi experiencia administrativa más reciente ha sido formada por dos años de liderazgo exitoso como una subdirectora aquí, en San Juan. Estoy muy contenta de poder utilizar mis habilidades de liderazgo educativo en la escuela de su hijo/hija y trabajar con usted en equipo en la educación de su hijo/hija para asegurarle su éxito.
Junto con el personal, voy a trabajar duro para continuar con el legado de éxito establecida en San Juan mediante la construcción de relaciones sólidas con los padres, los estudiantes, el personal y los socios de la comunidad. Nos centraremos en el fortalecimiento de nuestra identidad católica, habilidades del siglo 21, el fomento de un entorno seguro para los niños, el uso de los datos para informar la instrucción, la aplicación coherente de los estudiantes en nuestro recién adoptado programa de conferencias y Formación Académico de Padres y de Profesores (APTT), y proporcionar con mucha emoción y desafío, las oportunidades para enriquecimiento para todos los estudiantes.
Creo que este año será exitoso en St. John con el apoyo de los maestros y el personal en el crecimiento académico, social y emocional de su hijo.
Durante el transcurso del año, es mi esperanza de que vamos a trabajar juntos para proporcionar a los estudiantes de San Juan las mejores oportunidades posibles en su preparación y para prepararlos como personas de fe dispuestos a superar los retos que se encontrarán en su camino hacia la 'universidad y el Cielo 'con una base sólida creada aquí en nuestra escuela. Como directora, mi puerta está siempre abierta y yo le doy la bienvenida siempre que usted desea entrar. Por favor, siéntase libre de pasar o en llamar para hacer una cita para consultar todas sus dudas, sugerencias o ideas para ayudar a hacer de este el mejor año todavía! Espero con interés trabajar con usted y su hijo.
Unidos en Cristo,
DIOS EN TODO
