• Dear Parents:

    I am most honored to continue my work here in the Mad River School District as your Principal of Stebbins High School. As I begin the year in this new role, I am excited to collaborate with remarkable educators in fostering a positive educational experience for our students. Our goal is to educate for excellence by empowering students to become compassionate, confident, creative leaders of tomorrow. As a Riverside resident, and Mad River parent, I understand the need for Riverside students to receive a high-quality education that will equip our children for future success after they graduate.

    Some of you may be interested in knowing a little bit about me. I have been with the Mad River School District for over seventeen years; prior to this position, I served as curriculum and instructional support for the District. I have also held the positions of sixth grade teacher- math, ELA, science and social studies, and a language arts teacher for grades seventh and eighth at Spinning Hills Middle School.  I started my teaching career at Dayton Public Schools as a fourth grade teacher. I hold a B.S. in Elementary Education from Wright State University and an M.S. in Education, Educational Leadership from the University of Dayton.

    As a child who grew up in a military family, I understand the personal sacrifice and important contributions of military children. Furthermore, I appreciate the commitment, contributions and sacrifices of our military and their families. I look forward to creating a close relationship will all of our Wright-Patt families while they are at Stebbins High School.

    I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Stebbins High School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community.   All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.

    My staff and I invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTO, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.  

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for this tremendous opportunity, and I look forward to a wonderful year.
