"As an educator and more specifically the Principal, I want students to love learning. I began my teaching career at Zion in 1993 teaching 4th grade. After completing my Master’s degree, I wanted a new challenge but wasn’t ready to leave the classroom. I moved up to teach 7th & 8th grade in a Junior High setting and served as Assistant Principal. In 2002, I became Interim Principal and formally accepted the position as Principal in 2003. This current school year began my 25th year in education at Zion. I strive to create an environment that supports students, teachers, and parents. I want Zion to be a safe, friendly, and encouraging environment where all students grow spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally. I want all of our students to experience success and grow to know Jesus’ love. My door is always open and our entire faculty and staff care for our students and their families. Zion’s mission is to Share Christ, and Change Lives. Zion Lutheran Church and Schools do this every day! We are here to Teach Christ and Serve Families. We hope you will take time to see what Zion has to offer your child and your family. We would love to partner with you in helping prepare your child for their future. We want each child to grow in their faith, succeed academically, have an optimistic future, and be prepared to be noble leaders."
