Fostering Future Leaders


I have been in the field of education for over 21 years and feel blessed that I am the Principal of St. Martin of Tours School. We are a Catholic TK-8th grade elementary school that is celebrating its 63rd year of educating students. I invite you to visit our campus and see why our students are thriving academically and growing spiritually in our Catholic community! 

Preparing a child for a world that doesn’t even exist yet is a daunting task so, how do we do that at STM? We start with extraordinary teachers that promote a loving and nurturing environment that encourage learning for knowledge, not just a letter grade. Students practice problem solving, thinking analytically, collaborating, communicating, and taking accountability in an ethical and Christ-centered way. Students are supported with differentiated data driven instruction, continually updated technology, adaptive software, and a Learning Lab that provides intervention and support. Academic excellence is just the beginning, we offer additional opportunities to fall in love with learning through: Spanish, music, band, drama, art, yearbook, outdoor educational trips, service and leadership opportunities, middle school electives and collaboration time. Our large on-site field and gymnasium enhance many of our programs, including the PE and sports programs.

Educational research shows that one of the most important characteristics of an effective school is a strong home-school relationship. We believe at STM that parents are the primary educators of their children and we work hand-in-hand with our parents to create an environment that exudes Catholic values and allows students to excel to the best of their ability.

We want our students to have fun and make memories that will last a life time as they grow into successful productive leaders of our society. I welcome you to come and see firsthand what has drawn myself and so many of our families to St. Martin of Tours School!
