  • Welcome to Riverside Elementary, home of Super Bear!  I am currently on my twenty-second year at Riverside during which I have served in many capacities, including my current position of  Principal.  I received my Bachelors of Elementary Education and Masters in Educational Leadership degrees from Southeastern Lousiana University.  

    I am a life long resident of Pearl River and a product of St. Tammany Parish schools.  My family has deep roots in St. Tammany that can be traced back many generations.  My dedication and commitment to the students of Riverside, the Pearl River Learning Community and St. Tammany Parish stems from my love for the area. 

    I believe that every student can succeed.  It is my mission to support all stakeholders in helping children become productive adults who are prepared for the future. I value a strong relationship between families, educators, and the community. Through these relationships, students can be postitively challenged, enriched and inspired to be self motivated, life long learners.
