Welcome to Pine Tree Elementary. I am thrilled that you are part of our family.Let me first tell you a little about myself since I will be spending a great deal of time with your child. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Ball State University, a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from IUPUI, and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Purdue University.I spent 15 years in the classroom.... right here in Avon. I then served two years as Assistant Principal before moving to Pine Tree to be the Principal. I started at Pine Tree in 2007 and have been here since. I just completed my 28th year as an Avon teacher / administrator and I couldn't be more proud to say that I've been an Avon Oriole the entire time.My husband and I are the proud parents of two children.... one in college and one who just graduated from college. Besides being with my family, I love sitting on my deck reading a good book, scrapbooking, and anything Disney.I am looking forward to a fantastic new school year.
