Ballard West Elementary


Welcome to Ballard West Elementary School! I am very proud to be the principal at West serving a committed staff, supportive parents, and awesome kids.

The Cyclones have a special place in my heart as I completed my undergraduate work in Ames.  I earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and I have had the good fortune of serving kids as a fifth grade teacher, a third grade teacher, and a K-5 Instructional Coach.  After earning PK-12 Administrative Licensure I worked as a K-12 Curriculum Director and now I am back in the schools working with teachers and kids every day.

When not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband Jeff, and our four children. (Kyle 17, Reilly 14, Derek 13, and Ryan 8.  We enjoy sports, movies, and spending time with family and friends.

I look forward to a great year at Ballard West. I am honored to serve the students and staff and to continue building on the great things that are happening here. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions, comments, concerns or compliments!
