She was instrumental in strengthening Hamilton’s curriculum, and worked to create a student-centered environment by giving students a voice in their education and by partnering with teachers. She is a proponent of Arts Education, having written and produced three school productions based on classic children’s stories. She also championed a Social Emotional Learning program, which is taught in every grade. Before Hamilton, she taught fourth grade at Stockton Elementary School, and also served as Chair of its newly-created middle school department when Stockton expanded beyond a K-6 school.
