As the Principal at Lower Dauphin Middle School I have had the pleasure of being a proud parent and community member over the past ten years and I look forward to many more! Being here at Lower Dauphin really is a family affair and I welcome being an even larger part of our school community. When you don’t see me at a field hockey game, you can catch me planning my next trip to the beach or to Disney World for a RunDisney event.
Prior to coming to Lower Dauphin, I was the Principal at Elizabethtown Area Middle School. The first 15 years of my career were in the Palmyra Area School District, with the first 12 as the Middle School Band Director and then 3 years as the Assistant Principal. I have enjoyed spending my entire career at the Middle School level. I truly love working with this age of student and I find joy and laughter each day in the new things that greet us with this unique age.
I believe that all of our students have a unique potential to thrive and excel in their own ways. Each of them has their own talents and they are exploring who they are and what they want to be as they move through the Middle School and into the High School. Our Middle School mindset allows students to explore varied curriculum and opportunities so they can each engage and grow in their own potential. Not every path is smooth and you can expect some bumps along the way, but I know that we will all be able to work together so that our students have the best experience possible.
