During my sixteen years in public education, I have worked as a teacher, assistant principal and principal. I taught students in grades 1-4 in Arizona, Indiana, Virginia and Maryland. As an assistant principal, I worked for Howard County Public Schools in Maryland and at Chapman PK-8 in Huntsville.
My husband and I are relatively new to this area but we have fallen in love with the area and most especially the people. Madison County is a great place for us to raise our small family. Since I’ve been here I have served in administrative roles within the Huntsville City School System, as Principal of Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School for two years, and most recently completed my first year as the principal at Madison County Elementary School. I have enjoyed many personally and professionally satisfying experiences and high among these was the opportunity to lead a school through all phases of becoming the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence process. I am proud to say that Madison County E.S. has become a Project Lead the Way Gateway school, as well as increased our ACT Aspire Reading Scores by 7% in reading and 12% in mathematics during the 2015-2016 school year!
My variety of experiences in public education have helped me to see the impact that strong collaboration between the principal, staff and parents can have on student success. I look forward to forming these relationships at Madison County Elementary School!
