It is with great pleasure and excitement to be appointed Interim Principal at Gilbert A. Dater High School! I am both humbled and honored to join a dedicated and caring school community. I've had the pleasure to serve in the field of education for 20 years at The Children's Home of Cincinnati where I had the opportunity to learn and grow as an educator and administrator. I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and after graduating from high school I moved here to attend the University of Cincinnati. After earning my bachelor degree in sociology I attended the College of Mount St. Joseph where I earned a master's of degree in special education. I continued my studies, and earned a certificate in Educational Leadership. I've worked with students ranging in grades kindergarten through high school with significant behavior and learning challenges. I believe that all students can learn and excel when given the appropriate support and guidance. I am eager to bring my skills as a special educator and educational leader to Dater and partner with you.
I am proud to live and work in the Cincinnati Public School district! My husband and I are blessed to be parents of an amazing 9-year-old daughter. I am a proud Girl Scout Leader and find great reward in empowering girls to be future leaders. In my free time I enjoy reading, DIY projects, crafting, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.
Now more than ever, our students need a great deal of academic and social-emotional support as they deal with the impact of the pandemic while striving to meet academic expectations. I look forward to partnering with all of you to provide that guidance and support. One of the important aspects of my work here at Dater will be building strong relationships with students, teachers, school staff and families. You'll find me in hallways, classrooms and at special activities. I welcome your input and ideas throughout the school year. Students will always be the primary focus of our work.
