Dear Dover Elementary Parents, Guardians, and Students:

Welcome back to school! I hope that you had a safe and relaxing summer. We are extremely excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year. We are looking forward to another year of striving towards excellence! One of our focus areas this school year is to increase student academic growth in content areas.

We work as a team to ensure that our school is a safe haven for learning and growth. Dover Elementary is a place where we encourage our students to embrace learning. We work assiduously to foster an environment where students are empowered to execute excellence. Supporting our students in garnering skills to help them become productive world class citizens is vital. I am grateful to serve as the principal of this family-oriented school.  

I am excited to start my twentieth year as an educator. Sixteen of those years were spent in the classroom. During my career, I obtained my B.A., Masters, and advanced degrees from the following institutions of higher learning: Francis Marion University, Columbia College, and Grand Canyon University.  

If you would like to meet me just to say "Hello" please stop by any time.
