I am so excited to begin our 4th year at East Prep! This will be my 9th year as an Administrator for K-8 schools. Before that, I taught as a classroom teacher for 11 years, taught Library for 3 years and then became an Assistant Administrator for 3 years. I am driven to make East Prep the best that it can be and to have our students shine on their State Assessments!
