Meet Our Principal

Dear Wildcat Families and Community,

Welcome to Queen Creek Junior High School, home of the Wildcats!

It is an honor and a privilege to serve as principal of Queen Creek Junior High School where our mission is to remain committed to empowering all learners to reach their full potential. At QCJHS, we strive to create a safe and welcoming environment that values the diverse backgrounds and experiences of each unique learner. We are committed to implementing a challenging and comprehensive curriculum with fidelity along with positive behavior support practices for all students. Our core values are: Be Kind, Be Respectful, Show Integrity.

This school year marks my nineteenth year in the Queen Creek Unified School District. I have served as an assistant principal and athletics director at QCJHS for the past eight years, and I am excited to continue my journey as the principal. Prior to becoming the assistant principal, I started at the elementary level where I taught various grade levels at Jack Barnes Elementary. I then transitioned to QCJH where I taught both science and social studies. I am proud to serve such an amazing district as both an employee and a parent.

Queen Creek Junior High School has a rich tradition of academic and extracurricular success. We believe our continued success is a positive, collaborative culture comprised of students, staff, and our supportive community. You are encouraged and welcomed to be involved in any way that fits your schedule whether it is being part of our PTSO, site team, volunteering for school wide events, or simply providing a quiet place at home for completing homework. We value your involvement in your child’s education.

Welcome to Queen Creek Junior High School! We are excited to have you as part of our Wildcat family and look forward to working with you this year. Please take a moment to look through our website, like our Facebook page, and follow us on Instagram and Twitter to receive frequent and live updates. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to visit or contact our school.
