Hello, Gates County!
I am privileged and honored to be serving as the new principal of T.S. Cooper Elementary this year. After spending several years as an assistant principal at Gates County High School, I am very happy to continue working in this wonderful, welcoming community, helping Gates County's children to become the best they can be.
I grew up in Norfolk, VA and earned my bachelor's degree at Old Dominion University, with a double major in Child Psychology and Criminal Justice. I was a Wildcat for thirteen years at Weare Middle School in New Hampshire and earned my master's degree in Education from New England College. I then returned to the South to teach a year of 8th-grade History at Central Middle School before I went to Gates County High School to serve the community as assistant principal. Over fifteen years of work in education has left me with a passion for helping students to succeed and excel, both in school and in the world beyond.
I know that every student is capable of achieving great things--but they don't need to do it on their own. By working together as a community--teachers, administration, and parents--we can help our children grow and blossom. I look forward to working with all of you this year at T.S. Cooper!
