Reedy Creek Elementary School is a place filled with laughter, passion, and learning.  At Reedy Creek we believe that each and every person that comes onto our campus is valued and has tremendous worth.  Our motto is, “It’s not about me…it’s about we”. We teach our scholars to believe they can accomplish anything.  We believe in fresh-starts and new beginnings.  We believe in growth and potential.  And we believe in bringing everyone together to accomplish success.


Let me tell you a little about me. My daughter is a proud graduate of Reedy Creek Elementary school. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a bachelor’s degree in biology.  After working in private sector, I became a middle school math and language arts teacher in CMS. I earned a master’s degree in teaching & in school administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I became a middle school science resource teacher, middle & high school assistant principal, and human resource team leader all within CMS. I have been principal of Reedy Creek Elementary School for the past five years and take great joy in the success and achievement of our scholars, staff and school community.


I am so proud to be serving the Reedy Creek Elementary Community and I invite you to take part in the exciting things happening at Reedy Creek.
