What I love about my job:

I love being part of team that has a global impact on students' lives and learning. I have also learned a ton as an administrator watching great teachers teach. And ... I love the organized chaos of curriculum, facilities, activities, and discipline.


Why I chose Riverside:

I chose Riverside for many reasons. First, I have friends in the area that spoke/speak very highly of Riverside CSD, the people, and the area. My family loves the area with rolling hills and proximity to the metro as well. Other great things are the safety of the Oakland area and the opportunities for our children to participate and succeed in a supportive community. Also, I was born and raised in Iowa, and Riverside provided an opportunity to get back!


What makes me PROUD to be a Bulldog:

In my short time here, I am proud to be a Bulldog because of our staffs dedication to student achievement. I have witnessed teachers working hard this summer and have already had great educational discussions with many individuals and groups. The facilities are awesome as well.
