Principal's Corner

Welcome to the SES Family! 


I am honored to serve here as principal and grateful for the opportunity to lead an amazing faculty and students! 


I am currently in my 10th year as an educator. I have served as a classroom teacher, reading specialist, and instructional coach. I started my teaching career in Douglasville, Georgia where I taught for three years and then my family moved to Alexander City in 2014. I began teaching at Jim Pearson for a few years and then transitioned to Stephens Elementary. I currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Education: Early Childhood Education degree from the University of West Georgia and a Master of Education: Instructional Leadership degree from the University of West Alabama. I am married to a wonderful husband and we have two beautiful daughters.


I truly want to be the instructional leader of SES, not just the "principal". I promise to lead with passion and purpose. I will strive to achieve what is best for our students and their future. I will be visible in their classroom, I will support them, and I will play an integral role in the instruction that takes place on campus.


Our staff's goal is to be the light for our students. We are committed to lighting the way for them to have a successful future wherever life may take them. I am committed to each of our students, families, staff, district, and this wonderful community. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at any time.
