Principal's Welcome

It is my privilege to serve as the Principal of Summit Drive Elementary!   This is my 9th year as principal and I am so honored to be a part of such a fantastic school.  I live in the North Main neighborhood with my husband, Ryan, and our son, Davis.

Our focus for Summit Drive Elementary is a School of Leadership and Entrepreneurial Design.  Students recognize their own unique talents, explore new ideas and identify improvements, utilize a Design Thinking approach, collaborate with others and communicate effectively.  We embed leadership principles with Design Thinking into our curriculum standards.  We believe that our students will be “Leaders Changing the World.” This is done by reflecting on problems both local and global, researching possible solutions through experimentation, and communicating new ideas.

Parental and community involvement are essential for our continued success.  The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and School Improvement Council (SIC) are actively involved in our decision making. We value your presence during all school events and hope to provide a variety of opportunities to help us connect with your child and family.  I encourage you to get involved with our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and School Improvement Council (SIC) so that we can continue to it implement a successful foundation for all of our children. 

The staff at Summit Drive will work very hard to create a positive and welcoming school climate for our students.  We are honored that you entrust us with your child’s education.  Please let me know how I can assist you.
