RES Community,

I feel so grateful to be working with staff and students as principal at RES, and am proud to be a member of this community! My first experience as an RES Raccoon was in 1989 when my family moved to the area and I became a student here. It’s a rare privilege to lead the school I formerly attended!

As principal at RES, I believe firmly that our job is to support students in academic and social growth. I hope you see this reflected in our teaching, our work with Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and with our communication with parents. Know that we always seek parent input and support, and feel welcome to contact me to share celebrations and concerns.

As an RES parent, I am grateful to RES staff for supporting my own learners! I currently live in Hanover with my husband and two children. We love to ski on winter weekends and to be outdoors on summer ones.

Please accept this genuine invitation to be part of our RES community, whether virtually or in person!
