Principal Message 

Thank you for visiting the Clear Creek Middle School website.  I am excited to be able to be part of the school and your child’s life. 

I would like to take a bit of your time to tell you a little about myself.  I attended Chadron State College for my Bachelor’s Degree.  I have taught a wide variety of science classes in Wyoming and Nebraska for 8 years and have coached basketball, track and cross country. I earned my Master’s degree in Educational Administration in 2009 from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.  I have been a principal for several years.

Each child is important to me and I look forward to helping your child grow as a student and into a young adult.  By working together and having open communication between all parties, we will be able to enjoy their growth together.  We have a great staff with many opportunities for each student to be successful.

I am excited about the school year and getting to know everyone. My office door is always open to talk with students, parents, staff or community members.
