Hello Jefferson Families,


    It is a great honor to be the principal of Jefferson Elementary. Our school is a place committed to creating connections and helping students succeed. Our staff is caring and passionate about making this school an amazing learning environment and a place where our students want to be.

    This year the Jefferson Jet theme is “BE THE ONE!”  We will be working hard to be the one who makes a difference in the lives of others. We will be recognizing the positive actions of our students and promoting kindness. Our Positive Behavior team will work with our student council and our staff to build on what we do to help all students grow.  

    I am excited to continue leading this successful school and building upon Jefferson’s amazing community of learners. In addition to my work leading schools, I have 16 years of experience as an elementary classroom teacher for the Medford School District and experience in private industry as a Human Resource Director. I grew up in southern Oregon where my daughter attended Medford schools. My husband and I love living in the Rogue Valley and supporting this community.

    Please explore our website to learn more about our curriculum, programs, and events. Also, please like our Jefferson Facebook page to receive updates about our school community. I look forward to working with you.

    It is going to be a fantastic year at Jefferson! Please let me know if I can be of assistance. We are here to serve children, parents, and our community.
