Greetings Grannemann Families,


I am so excited to start my third year as your Assistant Principal. I enjoy serving the Grannemann Community and I look forward to partnering with you this year!  I have 12 years of educational experience in the University City School District. I have 10 years of classroom experience and 2 years of experience as an instructional coach. I also served as the summer school principal for four consecutive sessions.  I received my doctorate degree from Missouri Baptist University with a focus on Leadership in Teaching and Learning. I am married with two children. During my spare time, I enjoy reading, journaling, skating and spending time with my family. 


I am motivated by my core values: faith, family and making a difference. I look forward to working with you this year. If you need anything do not hesistate to reach out. I am here to support you in any way I can.
