I so excited to begin my 4th year at Troutman Elementary as your Assistant Principal. I am so thrilled to share my educational experiences with an incredible group of students, staff, and parents. As for my NC professional "life", I have been a member of the Iredell-Statesville Schools family for the past 17 years after moving from my hometown in Upstate NY. I have been fortunate enough to work as an Elementary Teacher, Instructional Facilitator, and Assistant Principal throughout my I-SS career. As for me (personally), my husband and I recently purchased our "dream" home in Statesville and are still trying to settle in to our 3+ acres. My husband, Jesse, works as the Garage Supervisor for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series which keeps him very busy throughout most of the year. We have two dogs, Maxwell Elvis and Stella, that complete our family. As for my extended family, they all still live in or close to my hometown in Western Upstate NY.
I am so excited to be at Troutman Elementary again this year!
