From the Principal's Desk...


    Dear Fayetteville Elementary Family,

    Welcome back to an exciting 2015-2016 school year at Fayetteville Elementary School! The staff is thrilled that you have entrusted your child’s education to us. It is our goal this year to create an enriched learning environment that engages each child. Fayetteville Elementary has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge and an outstanding support staff who work in different capacities to support your child’s learning. Of course, you are your child’s first teacher, and we encourage and welcome your support and cooperation. Along with your assistance, I am committed to fostering an optimal teaching and learning environment for all.

    We are embarking on our second year of implementation of The Leader in Me initiative. The principles that our students are learning have and will continue to make them outstanding and contributing members of our society. As an addition to The Leader in Me journey, we will also incorporate Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). These two frameworks will mirror each other as we strive to promote an effective school environment that will continue to increase teaching and learning for all students.

    Additionally, we encourage you to become an active participant in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The PTO is a wonderful and integral part of our school community. It is also a great way for you to share ideas and support the mission of the school. Another way to get involved includes volunteering by helping in classrooms, chaperoning field trips, organizing classroom celebrations and offering to share your area of expertise in the class or school.

    Finally, I sincerely believe in a school environment that is collaborative in nature and draws on the strengths of all stakeholders in striving to improve student outcomes. Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students. I look forward to working with all of the wonderful students, parents and stakeholders of Fayetteville Elementary.

    Dear Parents, Guardians & Stakeholders,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Assistant Principal of Fayetteville Elementary School. With over fourteen years of educational experience, I look forward to continuing my career in education as an FES Cub! My administrative experience has been shaped by a year of successful leadership as an Administrative Intern (grades K-5) in Gwinnett County. Prior to my role as a leader I was a Math and Literacy Instructional Coach as well as a Special Education teacher for 12 years. When I first began my teaching career, I spent a year as a 3rd grade teacher at a small Charter School. I was born and raised in Florida and taught there for 7 years before moving to Georgia in 2007. I am elated to bring my skills as an instructional leader to FES and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.


    Along with staff, I will work hard to build a legacy of success at FES by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character education, fostering a nurturing and safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, increasing student achievement, and providing exciting and challenging academic opportunities for all students.


    I anticipate a most successful year as we work together to support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Fayetteville Elementary School.

    It is my hope that we will provide the students of FES the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of their futures with a solid foundation created here at our school.


    As an Assistant Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!


    I look forward to working with you and your child!


    In partnership,
