Principal's Greeting

Welcome to the Fullerton Elementary Website.

Fullerton, opening in the fall of 1998, became a Communication Skills and Electronic Media Magnet Center during the 1999-2000 school year.  Fullerton serves students from Pre-K through 4th grade from all over the city!  Currently we have around 540 students attending, with an average class size of 23 students.  We love our diversity, which includes many different nationalities, cultures, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to the education of young people.  They put in the extra time needed at a magnet center to meet the needs of every student.  Our focus is on communication skills and electronic media, which includes writing, oral multi-media presentations, newspaper, TV, and radio.  We strongly encourage and welcome parent participation at Fullerton. Our PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is very active and is a key component to our success.

Come visit us, we'd love to show you the great things happening here! We are located in the Hillsborough sub-division, between Fort and Maple on 138th St.  The site is beautifully landscaped and adjacent to Hillsborough Park.

If you are unable to visit, please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments.

Personal Information

  Originally from Denver, IA, in a town of approximately 1,500 people, I came to Omaha as a student teacher at Bancroft Elementary and Beveridge Magnet School.  I received my bachelors’ degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Iowa.  I started my educational career as a fifth grade teacher at Ashland Park-Robbins Elementary.  During that time I earned my  Master's Degree in Educational Administration at Doane College.  After completing the Master's program at Doane College, I served three years as a Student Personnel Assistant at the Teacher Administrative Center.  I then became the Assistant Principal at Lewis & Clark Middle School.  I have enjoyed working as the Data Administrator for the past ten years.

I am humbled and honored to lead Fullerton into the future.  Fullerton is a high achieving school with a supportive community.  I am also humbled to step into a role filled by outstanding leaders before me.  The staff at Fullerton have worked hard to push students to reach higher every year.  I look forward to supporting the students, staff, and families as we work to develop our students to achieve at their highest potential, not only in academics, but physically and socially.
