Welcome Polk Elementary School Community

It is an honor to introduce myself to you as the Principal of Polk Elementary School and to be a part of this extraordinary school community. Although I have earned several degrees including a Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership, my love of learning continues. I lead a full and rewarding life where some of my most important roles are that of wife, mother and grandmother. My husband, Richard, and I have a wonderful marriage with two lovely daughters, two amazing grandchildren, and a couple of dogs who are tons of fun. Some of my other interests include gardening, reading, traveling and spending time with family and friends.   
I was fortunate early in my career to teach Chemistry and Biology at Truman High School in Taylor, the same school I attended. After several years of teaching in the classroom, I served for three years as a School Improvement Coordinator which allowed me to work at the district-level on school improvement initiatives, curriculum development and staff development. Afterward, I accepted a position in District No. 7 as the Assistant Principal of Best Middle School. 
It is a great privilege for me to currently serve as the Principal of Polk Elementary School. Polk has great kids who deserve the best education possible and I am passionate about helping each child reach his or her potential. I want all Polk students and staff to know that my goal is your success.

February is Kindness Month: Kindness Month Calendar

Please see the attached Kindness Month Calendar with daily suggested kindness activities and weekly FRI Dress Up Days. We will have an individual student coloring/writing classroom competition and we will select student winners at the end of February and they will earn a reward. We will also give students "Caught being Kind" slips when students are caught being kind. The slips will be turned into the Counseling mailbox. We will award certificates to those students and take their pictures (individually) as the "I" in Kind. Thanks for participating!
