The 2019-2020 school year will be my seventh year as the Principal at Colleyville Elementary School. I was previously the Assistant Principal for four years at Heritage Elementary School. Prior to that, I was a teacher at HES, and taught second grade for five years and fourth grade for five years. I feel lucky to be able to continue making an impact in the education of our students in GCISD and at Colleyville Elementary School.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.

My husband, Marc, is a Lieutenant with the Grapevine Police Department. Marc and I have three beautiful children. Our daughter, Kelsey, graduated from The University of Texas in Austin where she played for the UT Women's Soccer Team all four years of college. She now works for Frito Lay at their headquarters in Plano, and we couldn't be more proud. We also have a sixteen year old son, Aidan. He is a junior at CHHS this year. Aidan enjoys playing all sports, but soccer is his passion just like his big sister. He plays select soccer for Solar, and is on the CHHS varsity soccer team. Last, but not least, we have little Addison Layne who is 10 years old. She also loves playing soccer like her siblings (I promise they all had options!), and is in fifth grade this year. Marc and I are truly blessed!

We have so many fabulous learning opportunities planned for your children at Colleyville Elementary. We're going to have a fantastic school year!
