Glencoe Community,

I am excited to be helping out at Glencoe and am eager to support the students and school this fall until your new principal, Beth Shelby, arrives.

My background is as a school psychologist. I became a principal in 2000, leading Maplewood in SW Portland for 10 years. I truly enjoy the work of team building among teachers, staff, parents and community partners to best support students. 

I am committed to a smooth transition at Glencoe. My door is open and I look forward to working with the students and everyone who teaches and supports them.
