It is indeed an honor to be the principal of South Harnett Elementary.  I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community.

I have had the privilege of serving the students of Harnett County for 13 years.  After graduating from Campbell University with a BA in History, I began teaching at Triton High School.  After a few years, I returned to Campbell and obtained my Masters of School Administration.  I then had the good fortune to be an assistant principal at Triton High School and later I served as an assistant principal at Overhills Elementary.

I believe that the Leader in Me program gives our students the opportunity to grow as leaders and responsible citizens of their school community.  As we continue to “Learn and Lead for a Lifetime” it will come through collaboration, positive attitudes, fun and a nurturing environment.  As a professional learning community, we are committed to working tirelessly to provide rigorous and relevant educational opportunities for students.  But to be as successful as we can be in our learning community, we need our parents help.  You are a special and unique part of our learning community.  Collaboration with your child’s teacher is a main ingredient to a healthy and successful remainder of the year.  Open communication is vital to ensure a successful home-school partnership as well as parent involvement.

I look forward to working with you, your child and your child’s teachers.  My highest priority is the educational success of all students, an area where I am not willing to compromise.  South Harnett students deserve the best.  I am passionate about my mission as principal and I will make decisions that are in the best interest of your child.
