Principal's Message


August 15, 2017

Dear North Shoreview Families:

Welcome to the new school year! I hope your summer was full of family fun and that you are rested and ready for another year at NSM.

It is an honor to have been appointed as your principal. Please allow me to introduce myself. I have been an administrator for 16 years and worked with students in pre-school through twelfth grade. In addition to my administrative experience, I have been a classroom teacher and a Reading Recovery teacher. I grew up in Breckenridge, Texas which is a small town about 90 miles west of Fort Worth. I graduated from Texas Tech University and Texas Christian University. Sixteen years ago I moved to the Bay Area and have never looked back. What a wonderful place to live and work! When I am not working, I enjoy movies, baseball, college football, Broadway musicals, and curling up with a good book.

I consider it a privilege to work with children. I look forward to learning each student’s name and building trust and relationships with each family. I can usually be found “out and about” at arrival and dismissal times. During the school day, I devote most of my time to being with the teachers and children, but I will return phone calls and e-mails promptly – usually at the beginning or end of the day. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
