Hot Springs County High School employs a dedicated staff committed to providing a learning climate where every student feels connected and has a sense of belonging. They strive to create a culture where “kids come first” and positive relationships, high expectations with high support, and fun and laughter are important ingredients for student success.
Our staff will work tirelessly to engage students in learning through deep planning, collaboration, rigor, relationships, relevance, and consistent honing of our ability to provide effective instruction. We believe that holding ourselves accountable in these areas will result in continuous improvement in the classroom, on the playing fields, and on local, state and national achievement tests.
Being the high school principal I have the leadership task of creating a bridge to sustain our professional learning community goals of higher levels of learning for all students.
I have the unique opportunity of being a principal in my hometown. I am a fifth-generation Hot Springs County resident and take great pride in being part of creating a quality educational environment for the next generation.
Prior to becoming principal, I was the Hot Springs County School District Instructional Facilitator/Director of Instructional Technology. This work included developing the Digital Educator Leadership Team (DELT) and building a collaborative culture around technology integration in the classroom.
Over the past 20 years, I have enjoyed several work assignments as an educator. I had the privilege of being an adjunct professor at Lesley University working with teachers earning their master’s degrees. This allowed me to travel to over 15 states and teach hundreds of teachers in a weekend format for ten years. Each Lesley University assignment was in a school setting with a focus on curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Through these travels, I realized how fortunate we are in Wyoming to have up to date modern school facilities and educational resources.
I was also a teacher in Campbell County School District for three years, teaching 9th grade Social Studies and 7th/8th-grade Reading Strategies at Sage Valley Junior High. This experience allowed me to grow as a classroom teacher and realize how much I enjoyed helping students transition between middle school and high school, it is a critical time for students!
Hot Springs County High School is focused on student learning. As a student-centered school, we work hard to ensure all students are learning every day. It is a privilege to provide leadership at Hot Springs County High School!
