Hola! Hello! Summit bears and parents! I am honored to serve as your principal at Summit Charter Academy-Mathew. This is my 15th year as an educator and my 11th year serving the Burton Community.

In 2000 I earned a Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies from Fresno State and began my career at Strathmore Elementary as a kindergarten teacher. After receiving my masters degree in 2004, I joined the Burton School District and have had the opportunity to serve at several campuses including Oak Grove, Jim Maples Academy, and most recently Burton Elementary.

Besides having a great job working with an amazing group of educators, I also enjoy spending time with my family. My husband also works for the Burton School District. He serves as the director of academic technology. Together we have four children, 3 of whom attend Summit Charter Academy. Our youngest was just born this last July.

I look forward meeting all of the wonderful students and parents of Summit Charter Academy-Mathew.
