Hello Kay’s Creek Families! 

I am eager to welcome our students and staff back for the 2023-24 school year. We have one of the most professional, highly qualified, and dedicated groups of educators in Davis School District who are here to provide the excellent education and care that Kay's Creek Elementary School is known for.

With over 20 years of experience as an educator, and as a parent of 6 and grandparent of 16 beautiful children, I understand the importance of making sure we get it right for your children! They are precious. They are our future, and their success matters! At Kay's Creek, we are committed to ensuring our students feel safe, loved, respected, and supported in their academic and social-emotional learning. We know when our students feel this, they can truly fully engage in all the opportunities that are offered to them! Thank you for entrusting your children with us and with me. 

Ambitious standards and expectations for learning and social behavior have been in place since the beginning of Kay’s Creek, and that will continue. Our teachers create opportunities for collaboration, problem solving, and for students to apply classroom learning to real life situations as they learn to own their learning and choices. As a Microsoft Showcase School, we engage with Microsoft and like-minded school leaders around the world to deepen and expand education transformation using the Education Transformation Framework . This student-centered approach helps prepare our students for the 21st century world and careers ahead of them.  

This year we have adopted the theme of “Every Moment Matters.” We pledge to be intentional, thoughtful, and careful in how we create meaningful moments with your children. We hope you will join us in that effort!

I value clear communication between home and school and welcome parent input. The open dialogue between our staff, students and parents is an essential part of our success. We want all to pose questions, examine possibilities, and most importantly find solutions for relevant issues. I invite you to work closely with your child’s teacher and to reach out to me as needed. Bringing concerns and questions directly to the source of your student's education helps alleviate stress for you and your student! (

I am grateful to be a part of your family’s educational journey. It is going to be a fabulous 2023-24 school year!
