It is a privilege and an honor to be joining Nicholas County Schools as Principal of the Middle/High School. I began my career in education as an Engineering Technology Education teacher at Mason County High School, in Maysville, KY. During my tenure at Mason County HIgh School, I developed a successful engineering program from the ground up while teaching all of the courses in multiple career pathways.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Technology at Morehead State University in 2003, and earned my Masters of Teaching Degree from Eastern Kentucky University in 2012. In 2018, I earned my Master of Arts in Education in Instructional Leadership from Georgetown College.
Prior to beginning my career in education in 2012, I had a successful twenty-six year career in industry, holding various managerial positions including Head Industrial Engineer, Production Manager, and Plant Manager.
My vision for our school is one of a welcoming, respectful, and safe environment that provides our students with daily encouragement that makes them feel confident in their abilities. I want our classrooms to be a place of exploration, allowing students to develop their individual talents, while delivering an engaging and rigorous curriculum. The goal is to challenge our students to be the best possible version of themselves. Innovation in all areas of learning will be the norm and not the exception. Our most valuable resource, our children, deserve this environment and more.
I am excited to serve the students, faculty, staff, and the community of Carlisle. The possibilities of student success are endless!
