School Principal

I am so excited to be joining the Washington Elementary Staff and Mount Vernon School District family.  

I am a retired teacher/principal that just can’t stay retired.  I taught 2nd and 3rd grade at Manson Elementary School in Manson, Washington (on Lake Chelan) prior to being the middle and high school principal for almost 20 years in the Manson School District.  Those positions were the joy of my life!  In 2007, I left Manson and was hired to be the high school principal in La Conner School District.  After two years at that position, I was given the opportunity to be the middle and high school (6th-12th) grade principal in La Conner and again it was an honor and blessing to my educational experience. I retired from La Conner in June 2015.  In April 2016, I was given the opportunity to work at Allen Elementary School for 6 months in Burlington.   It was an amazing school and again an honor to work there.

I am excited to be part of the "wolf school family"  and to make this school year a success.  Please feel free to contact me at 360-428-6122 or by email at
