It is a great honor, beyond words, that I am able to serve the staff, students, parents, and community of Coralwood School as its principal. To give you a little information about myself, this is my 39th year in education and my 30th year as a principal. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Education from the State University of New York at Fredonia, my Master’s degree in Deaf Education from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, and both my Specialist’s degree and my Ph.D. in Educational Administration and Supervision from Georgia State University. I absolutely LOVE children and am totally committed to instilling in children a love of learning that will last their entire lifetime. I have two great sons, a gorgeous daughter in law, a grandson and a granddaughter (I'm a very proud Gigi) and a fabulous husband. My husband and I have five dogs, two cats, and one horse. I am a certified therapy dog handler/ team with two of my dogs (Kit Kat and Aspen) and you will often see them around Coralwood making our students laugh and smile.  I look forward to meeting each and every parent and learning more about your families.
