It is both an honor and my pleasure to serve the students, staff, and community as Assistant Principal. I received my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education in 1997 and Master of Science in Early Childhood Education in 1998 from Fort Valley State University. My teaching career began in Houston County in 1999. In 2003, I received my Educational Specialist Degree in Education Leadership/ Curriculum and Instruction from Cambridge College in Boston, Massachusetts. Since that time, I have worked in several different counties, as a teacher, instructional coach, and curriculum writer. I am married to Jeffrey Allen and together we have 3 children. I am committed to collaboratively working with the students, staff, and parents to foster a safe positive learning environment with the expectation of high levels of learning for all students. Also, I look forward to building relationships and serving the Westside Elementary School family. Please do not hesitate to call the school or contact me directly if you have questions or concerns.
