Welcome to another exciting year at Canby Lane Elementary School. I look forward to an academically rewarding year!  

It is my goal as Assistant Principal of Instruction to make sure students are engaged in hands-on rigorous activities. Through these hands on experiences our students will learn to apply common core standards to real life situations.

It is my pleasure to come to work every day and to make a difference in the lives of others. I absolutely love being an elementary school counselor. I have been committed to the success of students on the high school, middle school, and elementary school level for many years. This marks my twentieth year of educating and empowering the lives of students as an elementary school counselor. I am elated to work with the students, staff, parents, and businesses in the Canby Lane Elementary School community. Working within a holistic framework, I believe in empowering students to develop effective skills and strategies, to recognize their own strengths, and to achieve academic success.

Counseling services provided include: individual and group sessions; character education and career lessons; consulting with teachers, parents, and stakeholders to develop and implement counseling activities and services to support student achievement. The counseling curriculum includes the following units: anti-bullying, respect, perseverance, friendship, personal safety, study and test taking skills, career awareness, transitioning to middle school, and self-awareness.
