Assistant Principal: Dr. Laura Coughlin
I am excited to be part of the Tiffany Ridge team. I came to Park Hill from Hosea Elementary School in St. Joseph, MO, where I served as assistant principal. I have also previously worked as both an instructional coach and classroom teacher. I have my Masters degree in Instructional Technology and both my Specialist degree and Doctorate degree in School Leadership.
My husband Zac teaches math at Lakeview Middle School and we have a high school aged son and a middle school aged daughter who both attend school in the district. I am passionate about seeing the strengths in all students and helping them discover those strengths in themselves. In my free time I enjoy cooking, crochet, and watching my children compete in sports and perform in band and choir. Make it a great day!
