Greetings Primavera parents and students,

I would like to welcome you to Primavera Online High School and Middle School. My responsibility as the principal of Primavera is to ensure that our students remain the center focus of everything we do. In addition, I am here to support our teachers as they diligently work to provide students and their parents with the most positive and memorable high school experience.

I began my journey in the field of education more 17 years ago. I attended Arizona State University where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education with an emphasis in English. I later pursued and earned a Master of Education Degree with an emphasis on Educational Leadership and Supervision from Arizona State University. After many years in the classroom, district level positions and online teaching, I made the decision to give into my desire to continue learning. I am currently pursuing an Educational Doctorate in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in Behavioral Health at Grand Canyon University.

As an educator, not only do I believe that all students have the potential to learn, I also believe that every student deserves the opportunity to learn in an environment in which flexibility, compassion and encouragement are shown to students on a consistent basis and without hesitation.
