Principal's Bio

New Beginnings:

 I would like to introduce myself and tell you about my educational background. I have been an educator in the Roane Co. School System for 29 years. I have a BS in Elementary Education and an  MA in Instructional Leadership.  I have taught a variety of grades including Kindergarten, 5th,3rd, and 4th.  I served as assistant principal for four years and now have the opportunity to lead this great school.

I live in Kingston with my husband Tommy. I enjoy spending time with  family, hiking, kayaking, camping, and traveling.  Science has always been a favorite area of mine to teach.  I am very interested in building a strong STEM curriculum into DSES.  

I look forward to meeting students, parents, and community members this coming year.
