Assistant Principal

Hello Westmeade Dragon Community, Families, Neighbors, and Friends!

I am excited to join the Westmeade Elementary family as the new Assistant Principal. I am a native Nashvillian and proud graduate of Metro Nashville Public Schools. This is my tenth year with Metro Nashville Public Schools, where I most recently served as the Dean of Instruction at Lakeview Elementary Design Center. Prior to being at Lakeview, I taught third and fourth grade for 8 years. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of TN -Knoxville. After enjoying a successful career at The Tennessean, I left to answer the call to teach upon the completion of my Masters-in-Teaching from Trevecca Nazarene University. I later earned my Educational Specialist and Doctorate degrees from Trevecca.

At Westmeade, I am committed to:

Dream Big!

– ALL students will set growth and achievement goals and BELIEVE and work hard to meet and exceed them!

· Reading Achievement

– Through Wit & Wisdom and TN Foundations, students will be challenged to be read complex text and show their understanding by citing evidence through academic conversations.

· Adore

ALL of the children hopping out of cars, off school busses, and walking through the doors each day.

· Grow –

Students will not be the only ones asked to learn and grow. The faculty and staff, along with Dr. Crumbo and me are committed to being lifetime learners.

· Open-Mind and Door –

I will be visible to students, staff, and the community and will be open to listening to concerns and partnering together to develop solutions that benefit our little dragons!

· Name Recognition –

Relationships are the KEY to success! So, EVERY student will be known and made to feel they belong each day!

· Success –

We will celebrate successes just like our students, both BIG and SMALL!

I am looking forward to a wonderful 2022-2023 school year. Be sure to drop by to say hello, lend a helping hand, read to a student, or just thank our teachers or celebrate our students!

Gooooooooo Dragons!!
