• Greetings Griffins!

    Welcome to ACA Intermediate! 
    I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve as your Intermediate Principal. It's hard to believe, but this will be my 28th year in education.  I began my career as a first grade teacher, then later went on to become a school guidance counselor, working at the elementary and junior high level, and have spent the past 11 years as an elementary administrator.  
    I grew up in a small town and my roots are simple...faith, family, and serving others before yourself.  My husband & I live in Arlington and we have two children.  Our oldest, Haven is a Freshman at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma where she plays volleyball and is majoring in nursing, and our youngest, Holden is a Freshman at Grace Prep Academy.  We love to travel any chance we can get, but when we're home, we're usually in a gym or on a field cheering on our kid's sporting events, or serving at our local church home.  
    I firmly believe that everything must first be relational before it's functional, so I am very intentional about building relationships, being available & transparent, and doing what's best for kids at all times.  Thank you for partnering with ACA and helping your child be the best they can.  I look forward to getting to know you and your family better & making "Griffin memories" along the way.
