It is an honor and privilege to be the principal of the Paul School for the 2021-2022 school year. Prior to joining our wonderful school community, I was an assistant principal for four years at Rochester Middle School and an assistant principal in Nottingham for one year. I began my teaching journey as an elementary teacher within the Rochester School District, teaching both grades 4 and 5. My educational background includes a Bachelors Degree in Business with a minor in Criminal Justice, a Master’s of Education in Elementary Education grades kindergarten through 8, a Master’s level certification in PBIS, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports as well as a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership.

I have been married to my extremely supportive husband for 21 years. I have two daughters, Taylor and Morgan who are my world. Taylor is my oldest, she is the most humble and kindest person I know. She is a professional ice hockey player with the Boston Pride, this year she scored the game winning goal in the Isobel Cup Championship and her hockey stick has been inducted into the Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. My daughter Morgan lights up every room she walks in with her infectious smile and genuine love and care for others, just graduated high school and will be attending college in the fall, she will be studying Athletic Training and will be playing college lacrosse. My family are my biggest supporters and the reason I am the person I am today, they inspire me to dream big, to never give up and to be the best version of myself I can be.

I look forward to working with the students, staff and school community to continue to honor the proud history of Paul School and to ensure the success of our students. I have an open-door policy, please reach out to me so I can help support your student.

Vice Principal

It is with great appreciation that I have accepted this opportunity to be the assistant principal at Paul School. I began my teaching career as the art teacher at the school over 16 years ago and have also served in various leadership roles throughout my tenure here. Throughout my time here, I have enjoyed working with the students, families, and community and I am honored to continue my commitment to Paul School.  

I will complete my Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies through the University of New England in December of 2021. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Education with a concentration in technology integration from Lesley University.  Prior to my graduate degrees, I completed my undergraduate degree in Art Education through the University of Southern Maine. As a professional in education, I see value in learning and setting goals as I continue my career. 

I live in a small town much like Wakefield with my husband of 15 years and our two sons. Our boys attend a PreK-8 school and are involved in school, town, and club sports, especially soccer, but baseball is a close second. When we aren’t supporting our boys in sports, we often enjoy other outside activities, including camping, hiking, and running. 

I am a motivated, conscientious, creative team player focused on the best interest of students. I look forward to continuing my work with this school and community. Please, feel free to contact me.
