Week of Aug. 26th, 2019

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year,

       The school year is off to a good start and I am enjoying my time at Spring Creek as your new principal. I am a proud mom of two adult daughters and a labradoodle named Dixie. I taught elementary school in the Cotati Rohnert Park Unified School District for over thirty years and participated in many leadership roles.  While in the CRPUSD, I served as the Assistant Principal at two large Elementary Schools. Over the past twenty five years, I enjoyed teaching classes for teachers at Sonoma State University and Sonoma County Office of Education. The most important thing you should know about me is that I LOVE CHILDREN!!

Do you want your child to be able to attend field trips and participate in  fun activities?

Parents we can help, but you must complete the beginning of the school year information on-line as soon as possible in order for your child to attend field trips and other activities.

  • Volunteer in the classroom, correct papers, prep work, etc.
