It is with pride that I welcome you to Whitfield Elementary School. Whitfield Elementary staff prides itself on empowering our students in an environment that strives to meet the needs of the whole child; which includes making sure your child is healthy, safe, engaged, challenged, and supported in their educational journey. We place students at the heart of every decision we make in our work. Each and every child is an important member of our Whitfield family and because of them (and you!), Whitfield is a very special place to be.
My journey to the role of building principal began 2 years ago after serving as the building’s instructional support teacher for 6.5 years. Prior to that role, I taught in the Kennett Consolidated School District and Pequea Valley School District for 14 years collectively serving in the roles of elementary teacher, Title One Reading Specialist, and District Literacy Coach.
Please know my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. As the building principal, I look forward to working closely with you in helping your child be the best they can be each and every day.
