Welcome to Monument Ridge

Dear Families,


Welcome to Monument Ridge Elementary School’s new web page!  I am excited to introduce myself as the new principal. After 19 years as a teacher and administrator in New Jersey, I relocated with my family to Colorado in 2006. I have been married to my husband, Mark, for almost 35 years. We have two beautiful daughters, three adorable grandchildren and two senior Labrador Retrievers.  I am an avid runner and enjoy many other outdoor activities as well!  


For the past 13 years, I proudly served as principal of Pomona Elementary School. Last February, the D51 Foundation recognized Pomona as a 2018-2019 Outstanding School for Academic Growth, a recognition that I am extremely proud to have been part of. Being a person who thrives on big challenges, I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to work on something BIG in our community!  Being part of the design process and construction of Monument Ridge has been incredibly exciting, especially in the town of Fruita, a place I call home!


I look forward to working with the future families of Monument Ridge Elementary to help design and plan for our collaborative learning community. I will be scheduling many opportunities to meet with, and involve families in planning, as we move along in the process.  Please look for updates here, and on our new Facebook page after the first of the year!
