My #IHPromise – to be a servant to our students, staff, and community; I strive to provide continuous improvement to prepare our students for a promising future.

Your child is my priority. 

If there is one message that I want to convey to you – that is it. My professional commitment is to ensure your child is growing socially, emotionally, and academically. I want to make sure that your child feels safe and cared for every day when they enter my building. That is the expectation I set for myself, and each team member who calls Indian Hill Elementary School home. 

It is how we collectively operate as Braves.

Being a Brave means delivering excellence in education, empowering innovation, fostering growth, and being a servant to our community. We feel so much pride in our students. From the classroom, to the playground, to the lunchroom – the very best part of my day is seeing your child thrive, and knowing I’m helping to create the unique learning opportunities they need to grow into the very best version of themselves. 

Thank you for trusting me and my outstanding team with this awesome responsibility.

Your child is my priority, and my promise to you is prepare your child for a promising future.
