Principal's Message


Welcome to Crowne Hill Elementary School!  We are all so excited for the 2017-2018 school year! 


I was a founding teacher at Crowne Hill Elementary School’s opening in 2004, teaching 1st and 4th grade for 8 years!  I was thankful to have worked under such an amazing Principal, Karen Johnson, and to work alongside such an incredible team of dedicated teachers!  


I graduated from high school in Southern California and attended California State Fullerton, where I earned my BA in Social Studies and my secondary CA teaching credential.  I began teaching High School Government and then moved on to Middle School Social Studies.  After marrying and having my first child, I went back to school and got my elementary credential and taught 1st and 3rd grade in Manhattan Beach and then in the Vista Unified School District.  After having our second child, we decided to go on a cross-country trip, and ended up in Michigan!  Three years later, after too many cold winters, we moved to the San Francisco Bay area where I taught Kindergarten.  FINALLY we returned to Southern California and ended up in Temecula, CA!  I taught one year at Abbey Reinke and then moved over to help open up Crowne Hill.  While teaching at CHES, I decided to continue with my career goal and returned to school and earned my Masters in Administration from Concordia University.  In 2012 I was overjoyed to be chosen as the new Assistant Principal at Vail Ranch Middle School.  It was such a wonderful experience, as it was the middle school feeder for Crowne Hill.  I was able to follow my students and continue to lead them in my new Administrative role.  And now, here I am, 5 years later, returning to CHES as Principal!


While my story is filled with many twists and turns, it has given me a very extensive background: I have taught for 25 years at all various grade levels, been an Assistant Principal for 4 years, and now have the honor of fulfilling my goal and becoming a Principal!  I am excited to be the principal of such a distinguished school with a very dedicated staff that puts students first and a community of parents who value education as an investment for success in their children’s future. Please know that I am always available to assist you in any way I can. I look forward to meeting all of you in the Crowne Hill School community.  Working together, we will make this a highly successful year full of learning!


Kind Regards,
