Educational Background and Experiences
This is my 29th year as an Elbert County Educator with experience in kindergarten to 6th grade in the general, remedial and special education. I also served as an instructional lead teacher before moving in the position of principal. I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Education from Brenau University; and an Education Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision from Clemson University. (but I am a Georgia Bulldog at heart)
On a personal note, I have lived in Elbert County my entire life. My husband, Mark, is a “semi-retired” forester. We have two grown sons, Nathan and Nicholas; a daughter-in-law, Marti (married to Nathan); and two grandsons, Levi and Jacob. I also have a little rescue dog named “Bo” and two cats named “Ricky and Lucy”. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, hanging out at the lake, traveling to new and interesting places, and most of all, spending time with my precious grandsons.
Dear ECES Family,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! This school year will be a year of setting and reaching goals, working harder and smarter and taking our school and student achievement to a higher level of “GREATNESS”. As ECES, we are dedicated to a student-centered program that promotes academic excellence through an enriched, rigorous and relevant curriculum. As a staff, we are here to support parents and students by any means necessary to ensure that all students reach their fullest potential.
At Elbert County Elementary School, our goal is to ensure that all students become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, independent readers, and prolific writers. We do all of this to prepare our students for the demands of the real-world, to become productive citizens, and our future leaders.
As part of my regular routine, you will find me out and about the school, visiting classrooms on a regular basis. I will have an open door policy and will always be here for you. On behalf of the staff of ECES, I want to thank you for being a part of our school community where we are “learning to fly so we can soar”!
