Hello,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I announce my appointment as the new principal of Grantswood Community School.  I have previously served as an Alabama Reading Initiative Coach and Assistant Principal at Grantswood. Last year, I was an Assistant Principal at McAdory Elementary. I am thrilled to return back home! This is my 19th year in the wonderful field of education. I have worked in the Jefferson County School District for 18 years, serving as a classroom teacher and Instructional Coach. Our GCS mission, “Great kids, Change the world, with Supporting Relationships” will continue to soar as we work together to ensure the best possible education for ALL students. Let’s have an amazing 2021-2022 school year!
