It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Atkinson Elementary School. It is my honor to serve as the principal of this school where children are valued and respected as inviduals while learning is the chief priority. Our school community of teachers, staff, students, and family members work together to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which each child has the opportunity to successfully develop the academic, emotional and social skills necessary to effectively contribute in an increasingly diverse society.
I am currently serving in my fourth year as principal at Atkinson Elementary. Prior to my time as principal, I have served as a Lead Teacher in an elementary setting and a classroom teacher in fourth and fifth grade classrooms. I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and a masters degree in School Administration from Western Carolina University. My wife and I live in the Atkinson district and look forward to having our two daughters come to Atkinson in the near future.
I am continuously impressed with the commitment and dedication of each individual member in this school community. Teachers and staff here strive to provide children with the best possible learning experiences on a daily basis.
Thank you for supporting our school. Feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you in any fashion.
