Meet the Maplewood School Principal
Welcome to Maple Valley Schools. I am honored to be the principal of Maplewood School. You will find that there is a wealth of talent, caring and support among the staff of Maple Valley Schools. They provide a nurturing environment through innovative opportunities that fosters success for all students.
I am a Western Michigan Bronco with a master's degree in Elementary Education and another master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have spent my first 26 years in the field of education at nearby Lakewood Public Schools. Fifteen of those years were as a classroom teacher. The remaining years were a combination of Instructional Consultation Facilitator, State and Federal Grant Writer, Title I Director and Principal of Clarksville Elementary. For seven of those years I held all of those positions at once!
My husband, Tim, and I have two grown children who are married and starting families of their own. We are just loving this grandparenting stage of our lives. Tim and I enjoy camping and traveling. I love to read and dig around in my flower garden.
I have an open door policy and care about the social/emotional development and academic progress of each and every student under my care. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or ideas you may have to make this a successful school year.
