  • I am so proud & excited to be the principal at CE Cole Intermediate Center and a part of the Muhlenberg SD Family!! We are moving forward together and committed to making CE COLE the best school around.


    It is an honor to be a part of such a wonderful community and distinguished school district! We have outstanding students, parents, and staff with whom I look forward to continuing to build relationships with. When strong relationships are present….any goal is possible to achieve. I will continue to be a champion for all of our students. The entire Muhlenberg Community, including the school district, has so much to offer our families. I am so ready to get started and look forward to connecting with every student, parent/guardian, and MSD staff member.


    I also look forward to leading our staff as we grow a learning community that will provide our students with the skills they will need for success both now and in the future.

    I am a lifelong learner and will work hard each day to ensure that every student feels safe and welcome at our school. The CE Cole Staff is committed to building strong relationships that build continuous student growth & achievement. We will ensure each student can meet his/her goals and enjoy coming to school each day!
