Welcome to Carlisle Elementary. I have served Carlisle Elementary as principal for the past 15 years. I'm incredibly proud of the work that our staff is doing with regard to Professional Learning Communities and their commitment to professional excellence and continuous improvement. We were recently designated as an Exceptional school based upon our Iowa Report Card statistics which ranks us in the top 2% of all Iowa elementary buildings.
On a personal note, I'm a transplanted farm girl from NE Missouri and a Drake graduate. I am a recent empty-nester as my youngest child Madison is attending Northwestern University in Evanston. My two sons Spencer and Alex are students at Grand View and the University of Iowa. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, biking, running, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
