Cougar Academy Parents and Guardians,

As the new Principal of Cougar Academy at the Lincoln School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to become a member of this great school community. I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and a high quality school experience. I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

My professional career has spanned 16 years with the Harrisburg School District in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles. Before joining Cougar Academy, I held the positons of K-12 Teacher, Elementary Instructional Coach, High School Department Chair, and K-12 Assistant Principal.  My academic background includes Certification in Educational Leadership K-12, Masters of Education, ESL Program Specialist, and Bachelor of Elementary Education.  

If you would like to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, and ideas please contact the main of office at 717-703-4325.
