I am grateful and excited to begin my journey as Principal of Dutch Fork Elementary School, Academy of Environmental Science. I am a former student and graduate of School District Five,and it has always been a dream to become an elementary school principal. I have earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Winthrop University, and a Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of South Carolina. This will be my 14th year in education. It is hard to believe how fast time flies! I have formerly taught 6th grade math and science and 3rd grade. I have served as Administrative Assistant Principal at Ballentine Elementary and just recently served as the Assistant Principal of Instruction at Chapin Intermediate. I have a wonderful husband and best friend, Gavin. In our spare time we love listening to music, watching the Atlanta Braves and spending time with family! Family is always the most important thing, and Dutch Fork Elementary has become my new family. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. In D5 we love and grow our students, and it is now the growing season! We are ALL in...TOGETHER! It is going to be an amazing year. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you would like to be more involved or if I can ever do anything to help you and your fox cub!
