    I am excited to serve as the principal of Hanna Woods Elementary.  Before this role, I was the principal of Highcroft Ridge Elementary.  I have served as 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.  I received my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Missouri Baptist University.  Throughout 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.
