It is with great pleasure to serve as principal at North Grafton Elementary School. I am honored and proud to be a part of this amazing school community. The staff, students and families of our community truly have built it to be an incredible environment to establish a foundation of learning for all students.

    Here is a little about me: I worked as a special education teacher and then as a consultant for eleven years, through a partnership with the New England Center for Children.  After completing my board certification in behavioral analysis and educational leadership, I worked as an assistant principal for four years before becoming principal at NGES in 2015.  My family has also loved becoming part of the NGES community and you will often see my children at our school events: Caelin, 12; Finley, 10; Brogan, 7; and Padraig, 4. They keep us busy with soccer, lacrosse and snowboarding! We live just down the street in Upton and so we often run into NGES families on fields as well! As a family, we enjoy spending time outdoors whether it be hiking, biking or enjoying a local playground.  We look forward to our annual trip to Cape Cod for our family vacation to relax and reconnect after a busy school year. 

    With each year, we welcome new students and families and we hope to connect with each of you during the process!  When schools and families work together, everyone benefits.
