Hello Gator families!
I am thrilled to be a Gator and the Principal of Swift Creek Elementary.
What do you get when you combine a Hokie and a Ram? ME! I have a bachelor’s degree in Family and Child Development, as well as a master’s degree in Elementary Education, from Virginia Tech. In December 2010, I received my endorsement in Administration/Supervision from VCU, and — ever a life-long learner – I most recently received my Doctorate in Leadership from Virginia Commonwealth University in May of 2017.
I have two children; a son (Ryan) and a daughter (Katelyn), both of whom keep my husband and me on ballfields most evenings and weekends (and we wouldn’t have it any other way). However, in my free time, I love reading, running, exploring, learning, and doing new things with my family and friends.
I could not be more proud to serve Swift Creek students and their families as we work together to develop creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills in our kids! I believe that a successful year, full of learning and growth, is rooted in the relationships we establish with our students, their families, and the community of support we foster within our very special school!
I fully believe that EVERY Gator makes a difference!
