The Jenkins Independent school district is home to me! I do not view the position of principal as a job, but instead as an opportunity to lead our school to accomplish great things. The role of principal entails many exciting opportunities associated with student achievement. However, most importantly, my personal and professional goal is to provide children at JES with the best educational experience possible – one that will build a foundation for life-long learning.
My passion for elementary education as well as the enthusiasm of my staff will always be evident. In a collaborative effort, we want our students to thrive in all ways possible.
Our school must be a place where students want to learn and have fun. I promise to provide a learning environment that is positive, safe, caring, and a fun place to learn and grow. My goal is always to invest time in getting to know the Jenkins school community – the students, parents, families, teachers, staff, and community members, and to provide our students the essentials needed for success in a safe and warm environment. The staff at JES will work together with the priority of having every student’s best interest at heart.
My message to all parents is to stay involved. This can be accomplished by staying in contact with your child’s teacher. Our expectations will be to consistently make sure you are aware of your child’s progress, and answer any questions or concerns you have at any time. This form of two-way monitoring will help ensure the success of your child’s education and well-being.
I feel fortunate and blessed to be in this leadership role and welcome it every day with open arms. This year there will be countless exciting events and activities planned for all of our students. Again, I am thrilled to be Jenkins Elementary’s Principal and I am looking forward to embarking on another exciting school year.
