Leadership

Hello! Thank you for your interest in Clinton West Elementary. It has been an honor to work with our Westside families, students, and community members to provide the best learning experience for our students. My passion for working with others inspired me to graduate from the University of Tulsa with a dual degree in Elementary Education and Psychology and the University of Oklahoma with a Master’s Degree in Human Relations. 

I’ve enjoyed serving Tulsa Public Schools for 24 years, beginning my career teaching at Wright Elementary. After seventeen years at Wright, I worked as a staff development teacher at McClure Elementary, a principal intern at McKinley Elementary, assistant principal at Anderson Elementary, principal at Park Elementary, and principal at Clinton West Elementary. Each student comes to school with amazing strengths and experiences. I love working with teachers and parents to discover what motivates our students to develop their talents. When we work together for our students, we can make the world a better place. 

My home and family are very dear to me. I have a seventh grade daughter and second grade son that transferred into Tulsa Public Schools. My son loves playing soccer and basketball., while my daughter enjoys participating in area 5K runs and looks forward to progressing to 10K runs. Sunday afternoons are typically filled with family members at my house enjoying my husband’s grilling.
