    Greetings Vikings,



    I am privileged to serve as your principal for the 2019-2020 school year. We have some great things in store for our students, and as parents and guardians, we want you to be a part of our journey every step of the way. I would like to say welcome to a year of new expectations, teachers, friends, and mentors as we start another year of success together. Thank you for being a vital member of our team as we start a fresh new year destined for great strides. Formerly, I have worked in the district as an Assistant Principal (CMS), 5th grade English Language Arts teacher (TS Cooper), and a Reading Coach for grades 6th, 7th, and 8th (CMS). It is my privilege to serve as your principal, working with students, staff, parents and the community as we prepare to meet and exceed your expectations.

    As a proud parent and former elementary educator, it is our hope to make middle school a smooth transition for all. As we start a new fun-filled race together this school year, I encourage students to get involved with new clubs, organizations, sports, and friends that can help steer us on the path of support and success. Parents please join us for our school spirit nights, athletic games, fundraisers, and PTA meetings as we progress to meet the needs of our students and staff. All community members please keep an ear out for the great news we have coming forth from Central Middle School.
