Greetings Woodville Faculty, Staff, Students & Community Members!
Welcome to the 2019-2020 School year! This begins my 2nd year as Assistant Principal at Woodville Elementary and I am excited to continue working with the students and staff of Woodville Elementary to continue moving our school toward excellence. This also begins my 20th year of education; and I still get butterflies before the 1st day of school because of the excitment each new year brings.
My passion for education began as a little girl who once played school with her stuffed animals and grandfather as her students. I began my career in Petersburg City Schools as a classroom teacher, I then transitioned to being a Title 1 Math Interventionist, Instructional Specalist and then as an Assistant Principal.
In addition to being an educator, I am a mother to a set of twin boys who are my sunshine; and wife to my husband of 17yrs. I am also an avid sports fan who enjoys watching basketball, and football games.
I look forward to working with you this year as we continue to prepare our students to be 21st Century Learners and Citizens.
