I have had extensive training in the areas of behavior management, educational leadership and Professional Learning Communities.
I am honored to be the Principal of this amazing school! Wing Elementary is the first new elementary school that our community has built in over 50 years, and it represents so much more than a physical structure! This is my 22nd year with Sikeston Public Schools, and I’m exstatic to see how the hope, safety, inspiration and innovation that this building provides affects the teaching and learning process. Welcome to Wing!
Prior to moving to my current position at Wing, I proudly served as Principal of Southeast Elementary here in Sikeston. I had been an administrator at Southeast since August of 2008. Before becoming an administrator, I taught third grade for eight years at Matthews Elementary. Coming back to the “Matthews” family brings life full circle for me.
I have been married to my husband, Jeromy, for almost 23 years. We have two children, and two fur babies: Charlie and Karl. Our daughter, Ashton, will a junior at Southeast Missouri State University this year and is a proud graduate of Sikeston High School. Our son, Kyler, will be a sophomore this year at Sikeston High School. We are most definitely a family of Bulldogs! We attend Terra Nova Church and are actively striving to spread hope in our community.
On my “time off”, I love to visit with family and friends. My absolute favorite place on Earth is Disney World in Orlando, Florida, but when I can’t be there...I also love retreating to our home-away-from-home at the river.
