I am honored to be the Principal of Tellico Plains Elementary School. I have lived in Tellico Plains my entire life and am a product of Tellico Plains schools, having graduated from Tellico Plains High School in 1999.  I have spent my entire career working as an educator in Monroe County and am thrilled to be back in my hometown, working with a wonderful and dedicated faculty and staff and surrounded by an excited group of young learners. As your principal, I promise to keep students at the forefront of every decision we make as a school.  We will strive to teach and provide students with the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to have a successful future. 


I believe that we all need to work together to ensure our children reach their fullest potential, and I encourage you to be an active participant at TPES.  I look forward to partnering with you to ensure we continue providing the best learning environment for all of our students and maintain our tradition of excellence and community that makes Tellico Elementary such a special place to be.  We are proud to be CubsStrong!
