Principal at Thomas C. Brunson Elementary School
When parents send their children to Thomas C. Brunson Elementary School, they expect them to be treated with respect, to be kept safe, and to get an education that will provide them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful not only in school, but in life. My great passion is to bring love, laughter, and learning into a child’s life. It is my passion to help our students learn and grow to be accountable, responsible people.
I believe that each child learns in a different way and at different times. I know that each student is an individual with unique learning needs. My mission is personalized learning for all students. This means each and every child has an individualized yearlong pathway for their learning and data walls so they can help track their progress to determine what they are going to learn next. This gives our students voice and choice about their own learning.
My educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Curriculum, Elementary Principal, Secondary Principal, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I have thirty two years of experience in the public school setting.
I have bright red hair and can be easily spotted on the playground, in the cafeteria, and at football games on Friday nights, where I enjoy visiting with former students, families, and many community members. I know that I am not perfect, so I strive for progress, not perfection. I want you to feel welcome at Thomas C. Brunson Elementary. It is a great place for our students to learn and grow.
