As Principal of Phelps Luck Elementary, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be a member of this great school and community. Phelps Luck continues to enjoy a rich history of academic excellence resulting from a wonderful partnership between the school staff and parents who provide a diversity of experiences for our children. Together, we can provide the modeling, consistency, and structure our students need to achieve academic success and develop positive citizenship traits. My professional career began in Howard County 26 years ago as a teacher at Hollifield Station Elementary School. I served as an assistant principal at Hollifield Station and Bellows Spring Elementary Schools and as principal at Bushy Park and Clemens Crossing Elementary Schools. I have enjoyed serving those communities in various roles, and those experiences will help me as I continue to serve the Phelps Luck community. As your principal, I aim to cultivate a learning community where all students will grow in knowledge, teachers will actively engage students in learning, and parents will be valued partners in their child's education. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please know I am here to have that dialogue with you. Again, I am privileged and honored to be your elementary school Principal.
