Dear Friends and Families of Plymouth Elementary School,
Welcome to Plymouth Elementary School! Each day, I am honored and privileged to serve as the principal of such a vibrant learning community.
Before becoming a principal, I was an English teacher for grades 7 through 12. My original mission was focused on a passion for reading and writing. As my experiences deepened, I realized how diverse each individual was and that mission evolved. The foundation of all the daily principal duties are the simple acts of listening and learning about our students’ hopes and dreams and working with families and teachers to help make those dreams happen in a safe learning environment. One of my all time heroes is Fritz the pony from Jan Brett’s beautiful picture book, Fritz and the Beautiful Horses. Fritz is kind and reliable and helps the children safely cross over a bridge safely to their homes. I highly recommend it!
My learning has taken me from Connecticut where I grew up, to the University of South Carolina where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in English. Later at Plymouth State University I earned a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and currently have a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from the University of New Hampshire.
Our staff at Plymouth Elementary School is our Champion Team. In addition to literacy, we value problem solving, creativity, and overall well-being for each child. Each day at Plymouth Elementary School is a learning adventure —we explore, play, work hard, study, share, and quite simply, we learn.
I enjoy precious time with my family~hiking, running road races, sharing books, and traveling.
Working with families is a cornerstone of Plymouth Elementary School. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, I encourage you to contact me via email, phone or simply stop in for a visit.
Thank you for your consistent and constant support.
