Principal's Bio


Welcome back to another exciting school year!  I am thrilled to be back in my fourth year as your principal.  It is an honor to work with the most amazing group of educators in White Pine County as we work together to provide world class instruction that changes the world for our students.

I begin my 26th year at White Pine Middle School.  My first 13 years were dedicated to 8th grade science.  3 years were spent in Response to Intervention and Special Education.  5 years of my career took me to the Assistant's Principal's office working with student discipline.  During my time at White Pine Middle School, I have been involved in numerous extra-curricular activities including coaching multiple sports, yearbook advisor and athletic director.  I absolutely love the middle school age group and count myself lucky to work with your children.

We are embarking on significant professional development at the school level in order to ensure quality Tier I instruction for our students.  A particular focus continues to be in literacy.  Our staff has introduced writing in the model of Claim, Evidence and Reasoning over the past two years.  Most recently we provided our students with an organizational tool for writing in all classes through the implementation of Cornell Notes. Working side by side with our teaching staff, we will continue to provide the best strategies for student learning and hold the highest expectations for students in order to achieve high cognitive demand for all.  Again it is an honor to work beside the best of the best at White Pine Middle School.

Feel free to call the office at 289-4841 at any time with questions or concerns that you have for your student or the school.
