Assistant Principal's Page
I am so excited to be a part of the Greeneville Middle School team! As I enter my 12th year in public education, I eagerly await the opportunities to work with the students, staff, and families this school year. As the Assistant Principal, I embrace the opportunity to partner with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging and memorable middle school experience.
Before moving to Greeneville City Schools, I taught in Knox County and served as a School Counselor in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. I earned my Bachelors of Science and Masters of Science degrees at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville (GO VOLS!!). I am currently finishing my E. Ds. and in the beginning stages of my dissertation to attain a Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership and Administration at Carson-Newman University. My research and dissertation is looking at the impact that teacher/student relationships have on student academic achievement.
I am originally from a small town in southern Wisconsin where I grew up on a pig, cattle, and sheep farm. I moved to Knoxville in 2004 to attend the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Growing up, I was an avid hunter, fisherman, sports enthusiast, and overall outdoors guy. While I do not get the chance to do those things as much anymore, I still enjoy getting outside any chance I get. Bowling, golf, softball, and going to the gym are some of my outlets and hobbies I still get the chance to participate in. I like to cook, music is an extremely important part of my life, and I enjoy the company of my friends. UT sports, the Brewers, Packers, Titans, and college football are teams I follow and try to never miss.
I am eager for the 2020-2021 school year to begin, whatever it may look like. Regardless of our schedule, I am looking forward to working with all of you and creating strong and lasting relationships with parents, students and community members. I am committed to ensuring that every student at Greeneville Middle School receives the best education we can provide. When we work together to achieve our goals, great things are bound to happen!
Please know my door is always open, and I am willing to speak with and meet as I am available. Feel free to reach out to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 423-639-7841.
I feel truly blessed to be the Assistant Principal of such a special school community. August cannot come soon enough!
