Principal's Bio

As a graduate of Linden High School, I am blessed to be back on campus serving as the principal.  I moved to Linden from Stockton when I was in the 5th grade and attended Glenwood Elementary, followed by LHS.  I played volleyball and softball all four years at LHS, and made lifelong memories with friends I have kept to this day.  I went on to play volleyball two more years at Delta College.  I graduated from CSU Stanislaus with my BA in Liberal Studies.  I have a Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Administrative Services Credential. This is my 23rd year in education, 12 of those were spent teaching for Linden Unified.  I spent 5 years as an administrator with Lodi Unified, and am beyond excited to be serving a community I love in my third year as principal at Linden High.
I have two children, a Sophomore at LHS and a freshman at Cabrillo College in Aptos.  I am a parent and educator and I bring these lenses into focus as an administrator.   Student success and safety are my highest priorities.   I am very fortunate to work with an amazing staff of certificated and classified personnel who love this community and our students, and work diligently to help us all navigate through this difficult pandemic. 
LHS staff is dedicated and professional, and we will do everything possible to make this year a successful year for our students both academically and emotionally.  We have plans in place school-wide that we believe will support the best student outcomes.  
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or especially good things I should know!
Looking forward to a great year!
