Meet the Principal

Hello Cole Bulldog Families,

I’m so excited to introduce myself as the new incoming principal of Cole Elementary School beginning in the 2023-24 school year. I’m grateful that I get to be a part of the Cole community of dedicated staff and teachers and the wonderful families that we serve. Cole Elementary is a special place and I’m honored to be a part of it.

I have spent 27 years in education starting off as a 2nd grade teacher at Fort Washington Elementary. Throughout my career I’ve taught grades 2nd grade through 6th grade in three different areas of Clovis Unified. I’ve had the privilege of being an administrator at Cole as the GIS for 3 years, and at Alta Sierra and Buchanan as a Learning Director for 3 years.

My husband, Tony, and I have raised three boys that have all graduated from Buchanan. To say that I have a soft spot for the Buchanan Area would be an understatement!

As always, Cole is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment in which all our students can learn. We strive to support our students and the families at Cole Elementary as it is vital to work in partnership with each other to successfully prepare our students. Thank you for your support of Cole Elementary and we look forward to the 2023-24 school year.
