• As a dean, I work closely with students, helping them find success with their academics, behaviors, and overall mental/emotional well being.  In addition, my role allows me to stay with the same group of students each year from 6th-8th grade. Staying with the same group of students as they move through each grade level is especially important because it gives me the opportunity to build a positive and trusting relationship with both students and families.  Relationship building and school culture are two things that I value the most, so don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time with any questions or concerns you have regarding your child or our school as a whole.   

    Seneca Ridge is a special place to be for students and we look forward to another year as we work to “Strengthen the CORE” values of Confidence, Ownership, Respect, and Empathy.
