Dean of Students

Hello Sandburg Families:

Thank you for the opportunity to join this incredible community here at Sandburg. I am honored to be a part of the Sandburg family. I look forward to working with such a supportive group of parents, hard working students and loving, dedicated educators.

Prior to coming to Sandburg, I taught middle school math for 23 years. The last 7 years was at Newton Middle School here in Littleton Public Schools. I have my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Computers in Education. I earned my principal’s certification in 2016.

I look forward to an exciting and busy semester, getting to know your students and this great school. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if there is anything I can help you or your student with.
