• Welcome to Highcroft Ridge.  At Highcroft, we greatly value a connection between school and family.  One important aspect of that relationship is effective communication.  Our goal is for our website to be a primary source of information about the school and a way to communicate effectively on a day to day basis.  We know that our students will only be fully successful with a solid partnership between home and school.  If you ever have a question, need assistance, or want to celebrate a success, please do not hesitate to call or email us.

    Cartelia and Diana


    LucasI am excited to serve as the principal of Highcroft Ridge Elementary.  Before this role, I was the assistant principal at Ross Elementary and served as Highcroft’s administrative intern for two years before moving to Ross.  I received a Bachelor of Arts in Education, a Master of Arts in Teaching, and an Education Specialist in Educational Leadership all from Webster University.  Over the course of my educational career, I have taught third grade and special reading, as well as supported students and teachers through literacy and instructional coaching.  I have two daughters who benefit from their Parkway education.  I enjoy running, baking, walks with my husband, and spending time with my family and friends.

    I began my education as a kindergartner in Parkway at Craig Elementary School and graduated from Parkway North High School.  I received my Bachelor’s degree from Missouri State and then taught eighth-grade English and history at Parkway Central Middle School.  I completed my Master’s degree at Maryville University with an emphasis on educational technology.  For five years, after leaving Central Middle, I supported eighth graders throughout the district in a program called REACH and then moved to South Middle to become an Instructional Coach.  I completed my Specialist degree in Administration from the University of Missouri-Columbia (Go Tigers!) and joined the Highcroft administration team in 2016.  I enjoy golfing with my husband, traveling with my two daughters and taking my dog for walks in the park.
