Principal's Bio

Welcome to South Clinton Elementary School. We are looking forward to another amazing school year! We have missed our students so much, and I look forward to reconnecting with returning students and meeting our new students in August!

For those of you who are new to South Clinton, I have worked in the Clinton City School system for the past sixteen years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades in Clinton City. I also previously served as the assistant principal at Clinton Elementary. This is my 5th year as principal at South Clinton.  

I received my Bachelor of Arts in child development and learning with teacher licensure from Maryville College in 2004.  I went on to pursue my Master of Science in educational administration from the University of Tennessee and graduated in 2007. I completed my Ed.S. in curriculum and instruction from Lincoln Memorial University in 2011.

I grew up in Clinton and attended Clinton High School. I live in Clinton with my husband and my two daughters.  

Please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. My goal this year is to help students grow, let them know that they are loved, and that they are worth it!
