Dear Cobb Mountain Elementary School Families,

There is no easy way to say what I have to say. I have decided to return to the classroom and accept a teaching position at Calistoga Elementary School. The past four years have taught me a great deal about education, leadership, and about myself. Teaching has always brought me the greatest joy, and my heart and mind are both telling me this is the right decision. I need to do what I feel is best for my family and me.

I have had the great privilege to be the Principal at Cobb Mountain Elementary School for the past four years, and a teacher for the eleven years prior to that.  I believe I am leaving the school in the very capable hands of an incredible team of educators. I’m grateful for all of the friendships and experiences I’ve shared with this amazing school community, and will always treasure my time with Middletown Unified.  Thanks to all of you for always supporting me as an educator, and helping me to become who I am today.
