I have taught second grade for 13 years and first grade for 1 year. I was assistant principal at Robert D. Sloman Primary, Douglas Elementary, and Douglas Middle School for 3 years. I was principal of Union Grove Elementary School for 7 years, and principal for 3 years at Robert D. Sloman Primary School.
I am very excited about being the principal of Claysville Elementary School.
I taught second grade at Claysville Jr. High School for 10 years and was the Claysville Jr. High School girls basketball coach for 5 years. I have been given the opportunity to see and visit with my former second grade students and basketball players. I am blessed to be back at Claysville Elementary. Claysville Elementary is a very special place to be.
Our campus is now a collaborative preschool through fourth grade elementary school. We enjoy seeing our students grow from preschool to fourth grade. Academic Excellence is a priority at our school. Our students take care of each other. Our school is an extraordinary place to learn and grow.
