It is my privilege to serve the students, parents, teachers, and our wonderful Valley Hi community as your Principal.

Welcome Valley Hi Students and Parents,

I would like to introduce myself to the Valley Hi community by first explaining how grateful and excited I am to lead the Valley Hi Family. This is my 20 th year in education (all at Northside). I spent my first nine years as a special education teacher and campus coordinator at Knowlton Elementary School. In the spring of 2013 I was fortunate enough to finish my Masters Degree program through NISD and UTSA and graciously accepted the position at Valley Hi as the administrative intern. Next, I was honored with being appointed the Vice Principal at Valley Hi. In March of 2016 I was named as the Principal of Valley Hi. There is no place I would rather be. My drive to become an administrator comes from my strong desire to leave a positive legacy of making a difference in children's lives along with the outlying community. Administration gives me the opportunity to reach hundreds of children a year in comparison to 24-26 in the classroom. I believe in the philosophy that you love students first and educate them second. You will see that reflected in our Mission Statement- "We educate with LOVE above all else"

I am from the great state of Illinois and have lived in San Antonio since 2002. I have 5 children and a dedicated wife. Included in our family are a 8 year old, a 13 year old, a 16 year old, a 21 year old, and a 22 year old. All my children are or were NISD students. I am a very Die Hard Chicago Bears Fan and I also follow the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bulls quite frequently.

Thank you for allowing me the privilege to serve the students, parents, teachers, and our wonderful Valley Hi community as your Principal.

I am excited to be the Associate Principal for Valley Hi Elementary School.

I began my career in Northside in 1996 and have had the opportunity to work at many wonderful campuses. During my time in NISD, I was an instructional assistant at Carlos Coon, Adams Hill and Leon Valley, I taught 2nd and 4th grade and Raba and Burke, served as a campus science specialist, worked at the district level in the elementary curriculum and instruction department and most recently was an administrative intern at Mead ES. I am elated to join the Valley Hi Woodchuck family and I am looking forward to being part of this wonderful community!

I am married and we have one daughter who attends a Northside school. During our free time, we love to read, spend time at the beach, and visit new places.

My goal is to help provide a loving environment for our students and families. I am here to support you, so please reach out if you ever have questions or suggestions.
