Welcome to Westlake School and the 2017-2018 school year! Westlake is an school and a fabulous place for hands on learning. Our staff works hard to increase student skills in communication, academics, socializations, vocational and activities of daily living. As I begin my sixth year as principal, I am delighted to work with you and continue to strengthen our program through collaborations with parents and school districts.
Please take a moment to view our school website where you will find all the pertinent information about our school and programs.

My personal and professional mission is to lead a life of accomplishment and great success by: 


  • Being a lifelong learner and encouraging my own children and students to do the same
  • Centering my life around the principles of integrity, values, and community service
  • Remembering the important things in life are family, friends and good health
  • Giving to others and remembering just how fortunate we are
  • Being a role model for others
  • Being respected as a leader and an educator
  • Being remembered as hard working and dedicated to teaching students to reach their highest potential.  

Feel free to contact me by telephone or email if you should have questions or concerns during the school year.
