Greetings Ross Elementary Community,
Words cannot begin to describe how excited I am to be named the new principal of Ross Elementary. I am truly humbled and honored to have the opportunity to work alongside such devoted staff, students, families, and community members. I am eager to serve the North Star family and will continue fostering the positive and successful climate that is Ross.
My first priority is to forge trusting, positive, and professional relationships with all students, families, and staff members. I believe that it is important to honor the diversity in our schools today. Our culture and unique backgrounds are the very thing that makes us special. It helps us to understand, empathize and support one another. I am committed to strong communication, transparency, collaboration and making all decisions based on what is in the best interest of our students. I strive to create memorable and meaningful educational experiences for our students. In addition, I will continue learning about the uniqueness of Ross Elementary and carrying on its traditions of excellence. I am committed to the Parkway mission by exploring new ways to meet the needs of all of our students and stretch them to be even more “capable, curious, caring and confident learners who understand and respond to the challenges of an ever-changing world”.
On a personal note, I was born in Texarkana Texas and moved to Florissant, Missouri when I was 8 years old. Prior to my role in administration, I served eight years as a classroom teacher in multiple grade levels ranging from first to fifth in both Rockwood and the Kirkwood School Districts. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children.
It is such an honor to begin this journey at Ross Elementary to continue providing an extraordinary learning environment for our students. Go North Stars!
