Hello J.L. Francis Eagles! I'm excited to re-join a dedicated team of teachers, students, families, and leaders this fall at Francis. Many changes have been made for the 2019-2020 school year and we are pumped to get the school year started. 

I am beginning my 3rd year at J.L. Francis Elementary and have learned so much from our students, families and school community! I have held multiple roles in my 19 years and eight schools within RPS. From teacher to School Testing Coordinator, Director of Summer Enrichment Programming, After-school Tutoring Administrator, Substitute Principal, Summer School Administrator to Assistant Principal it has truly been an honor to serve such a wide array of students along the way.  I'm hopeful that my rich background in elementary education can continue to help the Francis community as we look to go from good to great!!
