Alcott Elementary
Building Message

Alcott Learning Community,


Welcome to the 2015-16 school year!  I am honored to serve as Alcott’s building principal, and I look forward to working along side our caring staff to provide your child with exceptional learning opportunities in a safe environment.  Alcott Elementary is a learning community committed to empowering our students with respect, responsibility, and academic excellence.  As a learning community, we understand the critical role you play in your child’s education and value the partnership we have with families.  Thank you for your continued support.  


I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.  I am starting my 25th year in education. After graduating from Ohio University, I taught in grades K-6 for 12 years and served as an elementary instructional coach for 10 years in Hilliard and Upper Arlington.  I received my principal license from The Ohio State University and served as an assistant principal in Dublin City schools the past two years.  Westerville holds a special place in my heart.  My husband and I met in Westerville and were married here 26 years ago, so I am thrilled to be back! 


Alcott Elementary has an exceptional reputation, a highly dedicated staff, Outstanding Westerville LearnerS, and supportive parents.  It is a privilege to be a part of this learning community and I would love to meet you.  Please stop by to introduce yourself.
