Rovez Ingram - Principal

Greetings!
I am absolutely ecstatic to be serving as the principal of Marguerite Christian Elementary! I am confident the school year will be amazing and the Marguerite Christian Lions will be feasting on success!

In 2004, I graduated from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. Afterwards, I took my first teaching position with Richmond Public Schools and I taught fifth, fourth, and second grades. During my ten year tenure with RPS, I attended Virginia Commonwealth University and earned a Master of Education degree in Special Education, and a Post-Master’s Certificate in Educational Leadership. I obtained a grade four teaching position with Chesterfield County Public Schools in 2014, and was promoted to assistant principal the following year. I served as the assistant principal of Matoaca Elementary for three years.

In my leisure, I enjoy spending time with my wife and my two sons. Additionally, I love grilling, traveling, and watching the Carolina Panthers during football season!

I’m looking forward to partnering with all members of the Marguerite Christian family to make this an exciting school year! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance. #PowerofthePride

Gilbani Feliciano-Lugo - Associate Principal

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the Associate Principal of Marguerite Christian Elementary School. I am very humbled and honored to join this beautiful community.

After moving to the United States from my native country, Puerto Rico, I joined the CCPS family as a Spanish teacher at Alberta Smith Elementary School, where I taught for 11 years. I obtained my first administrative position as the Dean of Students at Elizabeth Davis Middle School, and for the past two years, I served as one of Beulah’s Assistant Principals.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico in 2006. I completed a Spanish as a Foreign Language Endorsement from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2008. I also graduated from the University of Virginia with a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision.

My vision is to increase equity for all students, provide culturally relevant learning experiences, and build strong relationships with students, families, and the community.

My husband and I, along with our two sons, love playing and watching basketball. Our favorite teams are the NBA Lakers and UVA. GO Hoos! We also LOVE cuddling and playing with our two French bulldogs.

I am eager to see you all and hope that you are as excited as I am for this upcoming school year. Please feel free to contact me if I may ever be of assistance to you. You may call me at (804) 530-5733 or email me at gilbani_feliciano@ccpsnet.net. #PowerofthePride

Alison Sheppard - Dean of Students

I am looking forward to being the Dean of Students at Marguerite Christian!

I majored in Psychology and Early Childhood Education at James Madison University in 2003. From there I went home to the tidewater region and taught first grade for Chesapeake Public Schools for three years and then taught third grade for Newport News Public Schools for another three years! I have spent the past 11 years at Evergreen Elementary in third grade for Chesterfield County. Throughout my teaching career I held many different leadership roles from team leader to math lead teacher. From that experience, I decided to work on my Masters of Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia. I will graduate in 2021! I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the classroom and am excited to take on this new leadership position or as my kids like to call it, “a principal in training!”

I grew up in Hampton, Virginia and moved to Chesterfield in 2009 with my husband. We have two awesome children and a boxer that we love spending time with, especially exploring the outdoors. In my spare time I also ski, play the piano, and read often!

It is my mission to support our little lions on their educational journey and foster strong relationships with our incredible staff and community. It is going to be a great year! #PowerofthePride
