I was born in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from UC Berkeley. I have been the principal of Kensington School for the past ten years, but I have been part of the Kensington School community for over twenty five years. Both of my daughters attended Kensington School, and during that time I was PTA president and my husband was Dads’ Club president. I was a special education teacher for fourteen years in the Richmond Unified School District before my children were born, and I have taught first, third, and fourth grades at Kensington. Kensington School is a very special place, and I feel so lucky to have spent so much of my personal and professional life in this wonderful school community.
