Thank you for all you do, Penny. You are a proud member of the WPS Team!

What I am listening to right now: K-LOVE
Superpower I wish I had: To know when someone needs help that I can give, and be able to see that visibly right away.
If I could make the world a better place in one way: I would slow down and be more intentional in all conversations and show true love and compassion to all even when I feel so overwhelmed and busy with my own life.
What has Westminster Public Schools meant to you? WPS really does feel like home. I raised my kids in the district, and they were involved in so many things. Plus, so many wonderful staff members have had a huge impact on our lives. Now, my grandchildren have been participating in the Westy Futures Programs with WPS; and I feel like I am starting all over again with them. I love working here and hope to be here until I retire.
Who inspires me in WPS (staff, parent, or student): There are so many people with whom I draw inspiration in our district. But I guess on a daily basis it would have to be Brisa Montgomery and Tatyana Glusko. They are both so smart, and they challenge me to do better. I have learned and continue to learn so much from both of them. They are great models of what our department strives to be.
