 Assistant Principal


Welcome to Battlefield Park Elementary School!  We are very excited about the 2017-2018 school year!  We look forward to working with all of our students, parents, and community members throughout the year. 

I am super excited to start my fifth year as Assistant Principal at BPES and my 15th year in education! I grew up in Orange County, Virginia, graduated from Longwood University in 2002, and received my Masterís from Virginia Commonwealth University. I taught fourth and fifth grade for two years in Orange County before coming to Hanover in 2004. I spent five years teaching at Washington Henry Elementary before moving to middle school. Prior to coming to BPES, I had the privilege of serving as a Senior Teacher at Chickahominy Middle School. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, attending UVA sporting events, and spending time with my husband, children, family, and friends.

As we embark on the new school year, I look forward to working with all our students and family members. My goal this year is to continue to build relationships with all of our BPES families in order to create a positive learning environment. Please feel free to contact me at any time during the school year. Working together as a team, we are helping to mold lifelong learners, and productive members of our society!
