Assistant Principal

I am truly blessed to have been born and raised in Whitwell, TN.  It was always my dream to work at Whitwell Elementary and give back to this community; and I am doing just that!  I have dedicated my life to making a difference in the lives of children and making my community a better place.  Education is the key to a rewarding and fulfilling life.  As an educator, I am left with the challenge to keep children in school, expand their knowledge, and keep them dreaming of all they can become.  As an assistant principal, it is my duty to build bridges between schools, communities, and the families of our children.
