The SAS Learner Profile is layered in three tiers.   First, we have the 4 Cs (in the dark blue compass points) that are the pillars of the work we are doing and intend to do moving forward.  Second, we have the CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT (in the light blue compass points) that support our work.  And, Finally, we have the STUDENT ATTRIBUTES (in yellow) that we want all of our students to acquire before they graduate from SAS.  This learner profile supports more than just a collaboration of thoughts from educators across our District, it represents the top skills that employers want from our students as well.  In 2015, Forbes released a study from the National Association of Colleges and Employers. This study gathered survey information from hundreds of major employers across our country. The following is the top 10 skills employers say they seek, in order of importance:  Ability to work in a team structure Ability to make decisions and solve problems Ability to communicate verbally with people inside and outside of an organization Ability to plan, organize and prioritize work Ability to obtain and process information Ability to analyze quantitative data Technical knowledge related to the job Proficiency with computer software programs Ability to create and/or edit written reports Ability to sell and influence others  As you can see, the SAS Learner Profile connects with all of these skills that employers seek.

I hope that everyone is as excited to start the 2018-19 school year as I am!  As we “swarm together” at Heritage this year, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new students, families, and staff.  

This is my 16th year with the Saline Area Schools.  In that time, I have held the titles of Spanish Teacher, Saline Middle School Assistant Principal, English Language Learner Coordinator, and now, this is my third year as the Proud Principal of Heritage School.  I have been married to my wonderful husband for the past 17 years, and we have a daughter who is in fourth grade!  Thank you all for sharing your children with us!  We are looking forward to an extraordinary year!

 As a 2003 graduate of Saline Area Schools, it is an honor to serve as assistant principal  at Heritage! The         2018-19 school year marks my fourth year as assistant principal of Heritage School and tenth year overall in     education. Prior to working at Saline Area Schools, I had professional experiences at Cesar Chavez                 Academy in Detroit, Monroe High School and as a graduate assistant at Eastern Michigan University.

Saline is such a vibrant community, one that I am proud to call home. I look forward to reconnecting with the class of 2026 families and getting to know the class of 2027 families. In order for us at Heritage to provide the highest quality education for all students, it’s vital that families are part of the education process.

Between Project Based Learning (PBL), Project Lead the Way (PLTW), our specials classes and Community Meetings, we have so much to be excited about at Heritage. It’s going to be a great school year!  

I can’t wait for the school year to start and the opportunity to meet your child! If ever you have a question, please send me an email at or call me at 734-401-4158.
