Welcome to Bluff View

Bluff View is a great place to be! I am truly honored as the building principal to be part of this very special community. Our teachers are recognized as educational leaders throughout the state. The support staff is dedicated and continually goes far beyond expectations. Our parents passionately contribute to the school community in countless ways, volunteering thousands of hours each year. Finally, the students at Bluff View are hard-working and exceptional in their learning and achievement.

My role as the building administrator is first and foremost to be an instructional leader. I am here to serve the community and provide educational leadership to the school. The public entrusts this great institution to us. Our responsibility is to serve the needs of the community and help children become responsible, well-educated citizens who contribute to the greater good in society. By building relationships with each other, we become more unified and effective.

My office is always open, and I encourage you to call, email, or stop in anytime. Ask me about 1:1 iPad initiative and how they are used in the classroom setting.
