Welcome to Port Salerno Elementary – Home of the Stingrays!
As principal, I am committed to serving the students, staff, parents, and community. My goal is to support the implementation of outstanding instruction to help increase student achievement and proficiency.
A stingray family is known as a “fever”. I have a fever for high expectations, collaboration, and a positive school culture. My fever will be seen throughout my work this school year.
I am a graduate of Martin County High School and have resided in Stuart since 1985. I graduated with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida and continued my education at Florida Atlantic University where I received two masters degrees in Reading and Educational Leadership.
I taught for 14 years at J.D. Parker School of Science, Math, and Technology where I was named the Sallie Mae Outstanding New Teacher of the Year for the Martin County School District in 1998, Teacher of the Year in 2003, and the “I Make a Difference” Teacher in 2003. I have been an administrator at Port Salerno Elementary for the past 6 years and I look forward to many great years as a STINGRAY!
