Welcome to the 2023- 2024 school year!

It is an honor to serve as the principal of Harrell Budd Elementary School. Our school community has dedicated, talented members committed to doing what is in the best interest of our students. We will continue to put students first at Budd and work diligently to ensure their success. 

My professional background is rooted in educational leadership. For the past twenty-eight years, I have worked in public education as a  teacher,dual language instructional coach, and assistant principal.

My door is always open to you, and I sincerely welcome your input and support. I am excited about all we will accomplish together for our children and look forward to celebrating our collective success this school year.
