Welcome to our DB-EXCEL website! I am honored to be part of Kingsport City Schools and DB-EXCEL where we offer online and blended learning opportunities for students. DB-EXCEL is a great place to be a part of with tremendous community support.
Currently I have served as the DB-EXCEL principal since January 2014. Previously, I served as the principal of Kennedy Elementary School. I have also served as Assistant to the Principal at Lincoln Elementary and Johnson Elementary. Prior to serving in administrative roles, I worked as a 4th grade teacher and Kindergarten teacher at Johnston Elementary. All of my experiences have been positive and have shaped my values and beliefs of being "Student Focused" and "World Class".
My college experience consists of a Bachelor's of Early Childhood Education and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis from East Tennessee State University.
I welcome you to be active at DB-EXCEL and encourage you to be a part of educating our students. Your thoughts and input are always valued. Please contact me anytime as you may have questions or concerns. Together we will continue to make DB-EXCEL a great place!
