Students need to master the skills necessary for them to reach their maximum potential whether going to post-secondary education, a career, or the military.  We must give our students the tools they need to learn and acquire knowledge beyond the mortar and brick of our classrooms, empowering them to become valued  and productive members of our community.

I grew up on the south side of Milwaukee.  My time in high school was busy and hectic.  Beside taking classes and participating in volleyball, softball, basketball, and band, I also worked at my family's restaurant.  I have some fond memories and I want all students to have memorable experiences while here at Central.

I worked my way through college, got married, started teaching and then had three children - all graduated from Central.  Prior to becoming the Assistant Principal at West Allis Central High School, I substituted for the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District for 10 years and then taught Business Education and Special Education at Central for 15 years.

In my free time, I love to spend time with my children, their spouses, my granddaughter and friends cooking out, playing games, going to concerts, or taking our Harleys out on the open road.
