Hello GJHS Leopards!

It is my pleasure to officially welcome you to Gainesville Junior High as we begin the 2021-2022 school year. Our teachers and staff have worked hard preparing for this to be a wonderful year and we are all excited to have you be a part of the GJHS Leopard family!

It is truly my honor to serve as Principal of Gainesville Junior High School. This will be my 14th year in public education and my 8th year in Gainesville ISD. As a teacher, I taught all subject areas in 3rd and 4th grade. I have served as the Dean of Instruction at Chalmers Elementary, Assistant and Associate Principal at GJHS and this will be my third year as the campus Principal.

As a proud citizen of Gainesville and the mother of two GHS graduates, I appreciate the excellence in education that Gainesville ISD exemplifies. I do not believe that more dedicated, knowledgeable and compassionate educators can be found anywhere than in Gainesville ISD.

I look forward to getting to know all of our new students this year. Please let me know if there is any way that I may assist you or your student. My door is always open. This is going to be a fantastic year!
