Check us out as we hit the ground running earlier this summer.
In our profession, we listen to, and learn with, everyone around us. It is a gift beyond measure. As a leadership team we have more than 75 years of service to Neuqua Valley and this community. As Principal, it's an honor to lead with them.

I grew up in Wheaton and Naperville, and graduated from Naperville North and the University of Missouri (M-I-Z!). I first walked into Neuqua Valley in 1996 wearing a hard hat and wondering whether it was all going to be finished on time. That promise was fulfilled by a long list of incredible people who shared a sense of purpose and passion. For the last 22 years, I served as a Social Studies teacher, Head Track and Field Coach, English Department Chair, and, most recently, the Assistant Principal for Curriculum & Instruction.
On behalf of an outstanding faculty and staff, welcome to the new school year. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges that help each of us grow.
