I am so excited to be starting this year as Assistant Principal at Newfield Elementary. At Newfield, we have many things to be proud of and I look forward to joining the team. 


Although new to Newfield, I have been a teacher, summer school principal, and president of the parent teacher group in the Penn Yan Central District for 14 years. 


Be Safe, Be Caring, Be Respectful and Be Here, Be Ready defines the “Otter” way here at Newfield Elementary. You can be assured that I will uphold these values personally as your Vice Principal. It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors- teachers, students, and parents are excited to be here! I am passionate about making our school innovative, inviting, restorative and an engaging place where learning is paramount. 


I look forward to meeting all of our students and getting to know your families. It is exciting to think about all that we will achieve working together. Let’s make this year great!
