I am so excited to be opening the new Somerset Academy of Las Vegas Losee Campus as the Elementary Principal. We have so many wonderful ideas and plans to make our K-12 Losee Campus a rigorously competitive comprehensive campus.

Charter schools offer a choice for parents in the education of their children and I am pleased that you have chosen Somerset Academy of Las Vegas Losee Campus. We look forward to building relationships with all of our parents, students, and community members to help provide the best educational experience for our Losee Lions.

I am originally from upstate New York but have been in Las Vegas for over 30 years. My husband and I are blessed with a wonderful family of 5 children and 6 grandchildren. We are fortunate to be surrounded by many family members and friends here in the Las Vegas area.

My professional career has spanned over a range of 22 years, with experience in elementary, middle, and high school. I was in the classroom for the first 17 years before moving into administration. I started my career with Somerset Academy as the assistant principal at the North Las Vegas campus and then became the principal of the Somerset Oakey campus. I am so thrilled to be embarking on my next adventure, of opening the brand new Somerset Losee campus for the 2014/2015 school year. We have amazing students and we are building an amazing staff as well.

I look forward to meeting each of you and to working alongside you as a partner in your child's education.

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I ready myself to join the Somerset Academy family and become the Middle/High Principal of the Losee campus. I come to Somerset after spending 29 years with the Clark County School District, 13 as a principal of the Cowan Behavioral Program, Cortney Junior High School, and the past 8 ½ years as the principal of Palo Verde High School. As the secondary school principal, it is my mission to prepare middle school students for the rigors of high school, and to ensure that high school students are college and career ready.

This mission entails a true team effort between the school, parents, and, most importantly, the student. Together, we can set upon the goal of producing a scholarly, civic minded, well-rounded adult. I have spent my entire professional career doing just that. As a teacher, coach, and administrator, I have pursued the goal of providing every student with an enjoyable school experience that provides them with the tools that they will need for life in the 21st. century.

I look forward to meeting each and every school stakeholder in the coming months and eagerly anticipate opening a brand new academic facility. Please let us know how we can assist you and your child in any way so that, together, we can all be successful in the classroom and beyond.
