Welcome Shortlidge Wildcats!
I am so pleased to be your principal. I love greeting you all everyday and watching young learners grow. We are proud of Shortlidge and the students and teachers who make it a special place. I am looking forward to a great school year full of fun and learning.
I grew up here in the City of Wilmington and graduated from AI DuPont High School. I attended University of Delaware and received my masters from Wilmington University. Most of my career, I taught kindergarten and first grade in Red Clay School District. I became the Principal at Shortlidge in 2015 and have loved working with staff and meeting all of our families and students. I live here in Wilmington with my family and my dog ToTo.
Stop by and say hello next time you're visiting our school.
