Title 1 Site Coordinator

First of all, what is a Title I Coordinator and why are you getting this notification?  Well, the Title I Coordinator first and foremost assists the principal. I will be working closely with Mrs. Eggleston to ensure that your children will be safe, secure and successful.  I will help with the budget and oversee various programs in the school that are a result of Title I money; programs such as Success Maker, Preschool, and intervention groups.  Whenever the principal is out of the building, I will be the one overseeing things.

I graduated from Southern Utah University in 1999 and began teaching 1st grade at Sunset Elementary. (All my funny stories are from 1st grade.)  I taught 1st grade for a total of four years.  I moved to Coral Cliffs Elementary and moved to 5th grade.   While teaching 5th grade, I met Jennifer LeBaron for the first time and we taught on the same team.  Little did I know that ten years later we would be working together again.  I left the classroom to be a Staff Developer for four years, where I worked with teachers.  I then moved to Heritage Elementary where I taught 5th grade for four more years.  Now I work here at Coral Canyon Elementary.

I live in Santa Clara with my family.  I have four kids, 3 girls and a boy. My oldest daughter is married and I have two grandkids; a cute little girl and an adorable little boy.   My other two girls are working and going to college.  My son is a freshman at Snow Canyon High School.  My wife graduated from Hurricane High School and is probably one of the smartest people I know.  I have the best mother-in-law in the world.  She happens to work at Coral Canyon.  Mrs. Cuff, in the computer lab, is my mother-in-law.

In conclusion, I want to say how excited and honored I am to be at this wonderful school.  I know and have worked with many of the faculty in the past and I really feel like I’m among family.
