Welcome to Morse Elementary School! It is my honor to introduce myself as your new principal. I started my teaching career in Blue Valley many years ago but have been in Montana for the last 22 years. I served as principal in Cascade, Montana for 2 years and Great Falls, Montana for 5 years. Before that, there were many years as a classroom teacher, instructional coach and a teacher on special assignment. I now have the great pleasure being back in Kansas and to serve the students and families at Morse.

I have three grown children. My daughter is here with me in Kansas, and my 2 sons are still in Montana. I also have 2 beautiful grandchildren. You can bet I will be taking vacations back to Montana to see them.

 This year we are getting “BACK IN THE GAME”! I look forward to partnering with you to continue to make Morse the great school it is.
