Principal's Message

Hello DES Families,

I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are getting excited for another year of learning

and growing at Danbury Elementary School. It is my first year at DES and I am very excited to be part

of this community. I have been in education for over 20 years, with 12 years teaching experience before

moving to administration. Before joining the Newfound School District I was a Head of School at

Seacoast Charter School in Dover and have worked as an administrator internationally and in other New

Hampshire schools. I look forward to meeting you all and a wonderful school year ahead.
