    I am happy to be at ILE!!  This is my ninth year as the principal at ILE and my twenty-ninth year in education.  I look forward to working with you and your child this school year as we are "Spearheading Success" every day!  I have been married to my husband Buck for twenty three years and we have two children in college-Andrew who is 21 and Catherine who is 19.  When not at ILE I enjoy reading and running half marathons.  Please let me know if I can ever assist you or your child in any way!

      I am happy to be at ILE!! This is my 13th year as an assistant principal at ILE and my 32nd year in education. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. I have also been blessed to be a loving mom for almost 18 years. My son is graduating from high school this year!  It truly delights me to work with students and their families! I believe that “everyone can learn something from someone.” Learning is a magnificent experience and I enjoy being a part of it. If there is something that I can do to help, please don’t hesitate to call.
