The 2018-2019 school year marks my 16th in the Riverside Local Schools as a principal and my 23rd year in education. I have been fortunate to work in three of our schools starting with Hadden, then I moved to Melridge for five years and now this begins my 6th and final year at Hale Road. We will be closing down Hale Road at the end of this school year and moving to a new building located on Madison Avenue.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Youngstown State University. I also earned my Master's degree in Educational Administration from Youngstown State in 2001. I earned my Prinicipal and Superintendent's license from Cleveland State University. Prior to becoming a prinicpal I was a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Rock Creek Elementary School in the Jefferson Area Local School District.
