It is my honor to work with the students, staff and parents of Pine Ridge Middle School to continue our tradition of excellence. My educational career began in Broward County as a reading teacher which I continued here in CCPS in 1998. In 2005, I began my administrative career as a Dean of Students, and have moved to be an Assistant Principal and Assistant Principal of Curriculum all in middle schools here in Collier County. I am excited that Pine Ridge Middle has a long history of finding ways for all of our students to succeed. From the garden, the outdoor classroom, musical experiences, scholar competitions to our sports teams, we have a place for everyone! All decisions are based on what is best for students. Together, we will make all Pine Ridge Middle students continue to be proud PANTHERS!
