I am honored to serve as your DLE PTO President for the 2018-2019 school year. I am surrounded by an incredible PTO board as well as amazing volunteers. I have enjoyed getting to know our parents and the staff at DLE. We hope to help make our school the best it can be! Please feel free to reach out to any of us throughout the school year.

We have lived in Sienna since 2006, and are excited to be part of our new school! I am a former school teacher and am now home with my three children and wonderful husband, Guy. Greysen is a fourth grader and Graham is in third. Our Emery is 4 and attends the Methodist Day School. We love spending time together as a family, camping and going to the beach. We also have a dog named Lando.
