Principal's Corner

Welcome to Eisenhower! I have been lucky to be part of the Eisenhower family since 2016 and the CUSD family since 2013. I started here after dipping my toes into administration as the Assistant Principal at Miller Middle School, which was a great learning experience for me. I realized that elementary school is where my heart is and I have a true passion for working with this age group. Eisenhower's staff is extremely hard working and caring. Each year they work together to get to know students on all levels of development. Our grade levels collaborate throughout the year and support each other with resources and ideas. 

In the classroom, I get to observe our teachers balancing all of the varied levels of academics and figuring out how to differentiate their instruction to personalize learning for each student and challenge each child at the appropriate level. Along with that, teachers guide students on how to behave and treat one another by modeling and praising, and then restoring relationships when something has happened. Our focus on social-emotional growth is vital to make sure that students are feeling happy and safe so that they can focus on their learning. 

One of my favorite parts of Eisenhower is all the activities we provide at recess and lunch time. We want every child to feel that they belong. In the last few years we have organized activities beyond the ball games that kids play. Some of these include: legos, rainbow looms, drawing, chalk, board games, No-enders, blocks, music, etc. It's great seeing all students engaging in an activity that is meaningful to them. 

In my free time, I love being a mom to my 3 boys, exercising, and being outside. I use what I learn about being a mom and try to support families with their parenting questions too. We are all in this together! I look forward to meeting you and our child and working with you so that together we can raise amazing citizens!
