Hello Gordon Families! I am thrilled to be starting my 2nd year as the Principal of our AMAZING Patriots. I am very excited to continue and extend our work from the 2019-2020 school year. This year we will continue with our student voice and choice work as well as incorporating Positive Behavior Systems, Social Emotional Learning and much more! I am looking forward to continuing to Build Bright Futures for each patriot with engaging and individualized student opportunities.
After graduating from Longwood University, my educational career began in Henrico County where I served as a second, third and fourth grade teacher for six years. During this time I earned my M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University. Next I moved into the role of Resource Teacher for two years before relocating with my family for a brief stint in Northern VA working as a third grade teacher for Alexandria City. Fortunately, we were brought back to Richmond and I returned to Henrico County as an Associate Principal for three years. Most recently I served as the Assistant Principal at Winterpock Elementary in Chesterfield.
I grew up in Midlothian, graduating from Clover Hill! My husband Matt, my 6 year old daughter Madison (a Patriot!) and my soon-to-be 4 year old son Jackson and I live in Moseley. As a family we love being outside, going to the beach, reading books and just enjoying time together.
I am looking forward to working with each of you to ensure all of our students are academically, emotionally, and socially supported and encouraged.
