La Cima

Middle School

  • I am proud to be the principal of La Cima Middle School.  I'm am grateful to have served our students, families, and staff for the past six years. 

    I am also a proud Arizona Wildcat, having attended the University of Arizona for my undergraduate studies and Northern Arizona University for my Master's program.

    Defining Moment in Education

    I knew I wanted to be a teacher from an early age.  Standing in front of a class that I could call my own was a wonderful feeling.  I loved being a teacher and to this day, I can't think of a more important career. 

    Core Educational Beliefs

    I believe in the power of education to transform lives.  I believe that education is the cure for poverty, racism, discrimination, and violence.  I believe that learning is a choice and that whether or not you are a young person or a grown adult, choosing to be a learner is a life-long commitment to becoming a better version of YOU.  I believe that rigor, relevance, and relationships are key to student success. 

    Prior Experience

    I like to say that my heart is in middle school.  Prior to becoming a principal, I was a middle school teacher at Booth-Fickett Math Science Magnet School and Wilson K-8.  After leaving the classroom, I became an assistant principal at Coronado K-8.
