Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year
Welcome to Edgewood Elementary. I am so proud to be the principal of this amazing school. I have worked for Michigan City Area Schools for the last sixteen years serving in the roles of a classroom teacher and an instructional coach. I graduated from Purdue University Northwest with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. After five years of teaching, I went back to Purdue Northwest and attained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. In the spring of 2018, I enrolled at Ball State University to attain my administration license.
I look forward to working closely with students, families, staff, and the community to ensure academic success for all students. I know that the collaboration of all will bring great success to our students. We have many partnerships, some of which include: Fathers and Father Figures Being Involved Organization, Chess Club, and connections with Jo-Ann Fabrics and Kohls. In addition, we have the Edgewood School Association that support monthly family nights and many building-wide initiatives. Edgewood also partners with Purdue Northwest as a practicum site for teacher candidates studying elementary education. We are always welcoming more parents and community volunteers to join our team.
This year is going to be fabulous! I could not be more thrilled to lead the Edgewood team!
