Dear Madison Students and Families,

It is with great honor and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of Madison Elementary School. I have received such a warm welcome from the staff and families I’ve met so far, and it is abundantly clear that Madison is a truly special place.

The 2023-2024 school year will mark my 19th year in education. I have served as a preK-2 teacher, instructional coach, and administrator for the children and families in the Kansas City Kansas Public School District and Louisburg Public School District. While I have LOVED every role I’ve played in education, it is in my position as an elementary principal where I have been most fulfilled. It provides me the chance to work collaboratively with smart and dedicated teachers, awesome students, and supportive families on a daily basis.

As I begin my first school year as principal of MDE, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is welcomed and excited to be here! This attitude enables us to set high academic expectations for all students in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

I am beyond excited to get to know all of the amazing families and students at MDE! Together we will make the 2023-2024 school year the best adventure yet!
