A Message from Principal Roberts:
"Working with staff and students as they learn and grow. The "Aha" look or comments when a concept is understood is always music to my ears! Watching productive struggle and staff and students using problem-solving skills or teamwork to complete something is so fun to be a part of. I also enjoy every opportunity to work with students to help them learn their potential, learn from mistakes, and find positive confidence in themselves. Middle School allows students to make mistakes and learn from them."
Mrs. Roberts has been married for 12 years to BJ Roberts (6th-grade teacher at Sandstone Middle School). Together they have two lovely children, Zoey (10) and Kellen (8). The Roberts family is a very active family with horses. They are involved in playing and coaching sports and working with their animals. Her hobbies include hunting, fishing, hiking, paddle boarding, berry picking, and gardening. In addition to spending time with her closest friends, she enjoys spending time with her parents. As a mother, she finds it particularly rewarding to watch her parents with her children.
