Principal’s Message

It is my pleasure to serve as the Paramount Online Academy Principal. I began my
teaching career in 2009, working to serve students and families from many cultural
backgrounds as I taught across both elementary and middle school. My passion for
teaching students and supporting their social and emotional growth led me to
leadership positions where I was excited to begin the work of coaching teachers to
prepare the next generation of critical thinkers and change-makers. In 2013, I
earned my Doctorate in Education from Lipscomb University. During my twelve
years of education and leadership experience, I have served as Dean of Culture,
Dean of Students and Dean of Instruction, and Adjunct Professor at Vanderbilt

The success of our students at Paramount Online Academy is built on the strong
frameworks and authentic relationships PSOE has built with Indiana families and
community partners. With the support of our parents, community, and dedicated
staff, our students will continue to achieve academic excellence through hard work,
dedication and perseverance.

I am honored to be a partner in this work with each of you and look forward to an
amazing school year.
