Assistant Principal


I am honored to serve as the Instructional Officer at Palmer-Laakso Elementary.

I am beginning the 22nd year of my career in education, and every year is as exciting to me as the first. Serving as a classroom teacher for 21 years has taught me so much about what it takes to be an effective school leader. My passion for teaching and learning is deeply engrained, and I aspire to instill the same into those around me.

I am thrilled to share in the wonderful learning that is occurring here on our campus. Palmer-Laakso and LFCISD are at the forefront of education! Students are working hard every day to communicate, collaborate, create, and critically think. Every day each student is analyzing text, supporting their thinking with examples, explaining their thought process, collaborating with peers and teachers, and learning from one another. PLE is truly a magical place, and I am excited to join our community, staff, and administrative team on this journey of educating innovative, global thinkers.

You are the reason we are here, so please feel free to stop by and visit if the need arises. Thank you for entrusting your children with us!

Dear PLE Parents and Community,

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this to our Panther community.  Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am honored to serve as the Instructional Officer of Palmer-Laakso Elementary.  As a graduate of Los Fresnos CISD (2004), I am proud to be home and part of a team that will continue the Los Fresnos tradition of shaping our students into future leaders.  

As partners in your child's education, I encourage you to keep in mind the ABCs for success.

Attendance:  School begins at 7:50 A.M. and ends at 3:00 P.M.

Behavior:  PLE Panthers are Leaders of the World who are respectful, responsible, and safe.

Communication:  Please communicate with your child's teacher and visit our school website regularly to stay informed of your child's day-to-day activities.  You can also sign up for Remind text messages.

The elementary years are foundational and critical times for students. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. One of my goals as Instructional Officer is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is respectable and safe in order for your child to receive the best possible academic instruction. I am excited about the wonderful things our students will achieve this school year.  If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
