Greetings Families!

I am excited to introduce myself to you as the next Principal of Plato Clearwater. This is my eighth year with Plato Academy. I grew up in western Maryland and moved to Pinellas County right before middle school. I have been here since then, graduating from Countryside High School and then St. Petersburg College. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education K-6 with Reading and ESOL endorsements. When I began my teaching career I was hired at Plato Academy Seminole and taught both Kindergarten and 2nd grade before pursuing my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of West Florida. I then became the Assistant Principal at Plato Academy Seminole and have worked closely with Mrs. Staab over the past few years, learning how to lead a school with compassion and purpose.

Although I have spent my career as an educator at Plato Seminole thus far, I am thrilled to join the PAC team! Being part of Plato Academy means being part of 9 sister schools, each filled with equally wonderful educators and leaders. I have worked with Mrs. Beck in the past when we were both part of the Kindergarten team and again recently as fellow assistant principals. I am thankful for her support and expertise as I embark on a new journey at PAC and I can assure you that we will work closely to ensure your families have a smooth and positive transition. My personal philosophy of education directly aligns with the Plato Academy mission statement and I am dedicated to ensuring the families at Plato Clearwater receive the same top-notch education that they have in the past, with a specific focus on high expectations and a nurturing environment.
