Dear Whitesburg Family,


I am truly honored to serve the Whitesburg community as the new Principal of Whitesburg Elementary School. It is with great excitement and pride, that I welcome each of you to the 2019-2020 school year.  I am thrilled to continue with the excellent tradition and reputation that WES has established. As a community member of Whitesburg, I am excited and grateful to have the opportunity to lead WES. I am looking forward to partnering with you to create a premier learning environment for you and your child.


This year we will work diligently to sustain the tradition of excellence at WES by continuing to work towards our mission of being recognized as a premier learning environment, where we offer exceptional opportunities to all students. In addition to being recognized as the only triple STEM certified elementary school in the nation, we will continue our pursuit to become STEAM certified. I am committed to leading the way through innovation for years to come. 


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am entering my 12th year in education and have had the opportunity to serve in multiple roles. I began my educational career in Carroll County Schools as a classroom teacher where I taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. I have also served as a special education teacher and in school coordinator. Most recently, I spent the last two years as Assistant Principal at Central Elementary. My husband, BJ, and I live in Whitesburg, Ga and have 3 children. Jack will start 2nd grade, and our twin daughters, Caroline and Sara Beth will be entering 1st grade at Whitesburg Elementary.


I would like to personally extend a special, yearlong invitation to each of you to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. I am committed to exploring new ways to reach students, parents, teachers, and the community as a whole. Please feel free to contact me at anytime. 


I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year, and I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces while getting to know each of you better.
