Principal's Message

Principal's Bio: Mrs. Jennifer Spakes
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 30 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.
