Director of Student Services

Hello Sycamore Academy Families! The 2018-2019 is my second school year on staff at Sycamore Academy as the Director of Student Services. I love being a part of the Sycamore team and supporting this organization in the implementation of differential instruction for students in PowerLab, Special Education, and other areas of need. I work closely with faculty to support them in the classroom as they serve the needs of our students. This school year begins my twentieth year in education. I have had the honor of being a classroom teacher grades K-5, an Assistant Principal, Principal and Director.  I am from North Carolina where I began my teaching career right after college. After the events of 911, I left the classroom and joined the United States Navy were I served a five year tour of duty stationed in San Diego.
