Greetings Students and Families!
I am honored to serve as principal of the Beaming Buldogs of HH Beam! I am over the moon excited to share handshakes, high fives and hugs each day I greet students. I began my career as a 5th grade teacher in Charlotte, my hometown. I made the big jump to middle school before serving as assistant principal; then principal in Charlotte, Kansas City, KS, then Asheville, NC.
I am a proud graduate of Johnson C Smith University in Charlotte, NC and received my Masters degree in School Administratiion at Cambridge College in Boston, MA. I am very passionate about serving students, families and the community through wraparound supports and various outreach endeavors, which is why I obtained a PH.D in Christian Organizational Leadership at Newburg Theological College in Evansville, IN.
My daughter, Krystle thinks my two grandchildren, Atlas and Aspen are now my new favorite people on earth.. My husband, Carlos and I love to travel in and out of the country. We also love to attend college and professional football games… of course my favorite teams are the Hornets, Carolina Pathers, Kansas City Chiefs, and KC Royals.
I look forward to partnering with students and families in ensuring they have an outstanding experience at HH Beam. “If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.” ~ Alfie Kohn
