Welcome to Jane Dee Hull Elementary! I feel extremely honored to be the principal of such an outstanding school! Our teachers and staff members are dedicated to helping all students succeed and enjoy learning. We are proud of our tradition of academic excellence at Hull: an Excelling school, the highest rating from the Arizona Department of Education, and an A+ School from the Arizona Educational Foundation.
In 1987 I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from Kansas State University, followed by a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instructional Leadership in 1993. I enjoyed teaching 5th grade for ten years in both Kansas and Arizona. In 1997-2004 I worked as a Curriculum Specialist in the Kyrene School District, as well as, Assistant Principal and Literacy Specialist at Kyrene de la Mariposa. In 2004-2007 I served as the Principal of a K-8 school in the Higley Unified School District.
My life outside of school revolves around my family, which brings me great joy and laughter. I share my life with my husband Brett and our two children, Bobbi and B.J. We enjoy spending time together travelling, watching sporting events, and playing board games. Our dogs Bailey and Brandi also keep us busy and entertained.
While at Jane Dee Hull, our students receive a challenging education in an environment which recognizes the individual differences of each child. Music, PE, library and technology are considered to be part of the essential core learning experiences. Our entire school is infused with technology, with every classroom equipped with computers, an LCD projector, document camera and an Easiteach slate.
The support of the PTO and the parents help to make Jane Dee Hull Elementary a truly wonderful place to work and learn!
