Welcome to Scullen Middle School! I am proud to serve as the principal of this amazing building, and I look forward to working with you and your child. I have spent my entire career in the middle schools of District 204, serving first as a teacher and now as an administrator. My experiences as an educator and former student of 204 (Gregory Middle School and WVHS graduate) have instilled in me a deep appreciation and love for this community. This is truly my home. 
As your principal, I hold myself accountable to advocate for students, support staff members, and collaborate with families. I am committed to making Scullen a home away from home for all stakeholders, and I will work with parents in an effort to make busy and stressful lives a little more manageable. Parenting is a difficult job, so let’s do it together! 
If I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me. GO SHARKS!

Welcome to Scullen!  I am proud to serve the students, parents, and teachers of Scullen Middle School. My experience includes over fifteen years as a music educator, a school dean, track coach, and music therapist. Scullen is an amazing school and I look forward to making the middle school experience here a memorable one for all students.

At Scullen, we strive to Inspire all students to achieve their greatest potential. As educators, we work with students to develop in academics, but also grit, curiosity, self-control, gratitude, social intelligence, optimism, and zest as character strengths for success.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of any assistance to you or your child. As I often say to the students on a daily basis "Work Hard and Be Nice" and GO SHARKS!
