Welcome to McCarter! It is an honor to serve as your  principal. This is my 5th year at McCarter and my 11th year in education. I've spent my entire career in the Topeka Public Schools district as a teacher, instructional coach, and now an assistant principal. I've loved working for our amazing district where I truly believe we inspire excellence for a lifetime.

I'm a lifelong Topekan. I completed my Bachelors Degree at Washburn University in elementary education, early childhood education, and early childhood special education. From there I went on to teach for six years but knew I needed to complete my calling. I began my Master's Degree at Baker University in educational leadership and graduated in December of 2016.

In my free time I love spending time with my family,  We enjoy traveling, spending time with friends, family, and our dog, Holly. We also enjoy watching sports. My husband is a graduate of Topeka West and played soccer and football his entire childhood. We love to attend games and support Topeka Public Schools.

McCarter Elementary is a safe community that empowers diverse learners who are ready, respectful, responsible citizens. With your continued partnership and support, each and every student at McCarter will achieve greatness.
