    Hi Husky Pup Family,

    I am ecstatic to serve as assistant principal of Gaston Elementary School this year. Together, we will have an awesome school year! 

    I would like to take a moment to introduce myself to the community and share my passion for elementary education. I am a BELIEVER of Northampton County Schools and I am a PROUD product of this county. This is my 17th year in education in Northampton County and I have previously served as a first through fourth grades teacher, Reading First Coach and Reading Recovery Teacher ®. I believe that education is the foundation to unlocking our dreams, passions, and securing our future.  

    Here at Gaston Elementary School, we care deeply about the success of our students. Our students should feel engaged in their learning through collaboration, problem solving and critical thinking. Our parents should be engaged in their child’s learning and active partners with the school.I look forward to partnering with this great community and building on the relationships that are so important to the progress of our school. If I can ever be of assistance to your family, please don't hesitate to contact me.
