Principal's Corner

Welcome to Elba Elementary School!

A Message from the Principal:

Welcome to Elba Elementary where we strive each day to be one team, with one goal.... Excellence!

It is our mission to provide a challenging education in a student-centered, safe, nurturing environment. The needs of students are addressed through rigorous, relevant curriculum and effective instruction that produces graduates who contribute responsibly in a global community.

I would like to personally thank you for taking a moment to explore the information that is provided throughout our website. Our website was developed to serve as a resource for our students, school staff, parents and the Elba community. 

I have been with Elba City Schools since I first started my journey as an educator in 2007. I hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership. Prior to becoming the elementary principal, I had the pleasure of teaching kindergarten, 4th-6th grades, as well as serve as the instructional coach for Elba City Schools. I have also held various leadership positions on several committees throughout my career. 

As your elementary principal, I believe that all children can learn, but each student learns in a different way and at a different pace.  It is my belief that through hard work and perseverance, we will have a positive impact on each student's future. I welcome you to come visit us to experience the various learning opportunities that are provided to our students on a daily basis. It is my goal to keep the atmosphere positive as well as the lines of communication open among students, parents, and staff.  It is my belief that, when we work as a team, all students will be able to reach their full potential. 

One team...One goal...Excellence!

Go Tigers!
