Dear Parents and Families,
I am so thankful for the opportunity to lead our school as your new principal. My career in education started twenty-two years ago, twenty plus years have been spent here at Pine View. The majority of my teaching career has been spent in grades five through eight. My leadership experience began as Pine View's Assistant Principal for seven years. I have unofficially continued to assist in leadership, while teaching grades seven and eight. I obtained my teaching degree at Tennessee Technological University, and then continued my education while teaching here at Pine View. My masters degree also came from TTU in the area of Instructional Leadership. I have served as a teacher, an assistant principal, and now the principal of Pine View Elementary. My goal is that each student, parent, community member, and staff member will feel the same sense of pride that I do when speaking about Pine View. As a school leader, I feel much of Pine View's success has been because of strong community/family support, dedicated teachers and staff, and wonderful students. I feel communication is crucial for maintaining strong relationships between the school and families of our students. This in turn, leads to student success, and that is our ultimate goal. By working together, we can achieve great things at Pine View. I value your support and look forward to a successful year! GO PIONEERS!
