Assistant Principal's Message

    • I am looking forward to serving the Chameleon family again this year as the Assistant Principal. This year we plan to help our Chameleons RISE by Raising Intentionality and Strengthening Expectations! 

    • Mrs. Hovatter and I will continue to utilize four recesses in our plan for our Chameleon's success. We believe strong minds make strong bodies.  We want our students to BE THEIR BEST with all learning tasks by knowing they can do hard things, can persevere, gain confidence, engage in learning, and have fun!  

    • After honorably and proudly serving in the US Navy, I decided to pursue my dreams and serve our youth as a Physical Education Teacher. Naval Aviation is a highly demanding job that taught me essential skills in management, attention to detail, and bringing a diverse team together to keep our aircraft mission capable. Over the last decade and teaching in three districts, I have transferred these skills into the world of education while maintaining a high level of integrity for myself and my students. These experiences, both in the classroom and in service to our country, have helped me create an empowering environment that encourages self-growth and inspires an interest in healthy living and physical activity.
