Principal's Message

Dear Pennoyer Families,

Each day I am honored to serve the Pennoyer School District and community in the capacity of school principal. “Educational excellence, continuity, stability and family” are not only words that describe Pennoyer School District 79 but they are words that describe the experience I seek to provide through my partnership with you all. 

This past school year closed out my 14th year serving in the public school setting. I began as a middle school math teacher where I taught 7th grade math and immediately held a position on the district math curriculum development committee. As school leadership became a greater focus of mine, I transitioned into the role of instructional coach. It was in this role that I developed a vision for school leadership that led me right onto the path of school administration. I began my career in school administration as an assistant principal at the middle school level where I oversaw student services as well as curriculum and instruction. The path I have followed that led me to Pennoyer has been filled with learning experiences, professional development and growth opportunities that I believe have prepared me to successfully serve the Pennoyer Community as Principal of Pennoyer School.

As your parnter in education, our team at Pennoyer strives to collaborate with our families to foster a love for learning. In doing so, we focus our efforts on providing our students a platform for their journey in learning to be celebrated and their creativity to shine! I always appreciate any opportunity to connect with the community, so don't be shy when you see me around!
