Hello, my name is Whitney Pasch. I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with the most dedicated and hardworking teachers and students in the country as the Assistant Principal at Dutchtown Elementary!
I have over fourteen years of teaching experience, all of which have been in Henry County. Before accepting my current role as Assistant Principal, I taught third and fifth grades at Oakland Elementary, Hampton Elementary and Rocky Creek Elementary. I was privileged to serve for three years as the Literacy Instructional Lead Teacher at Rocky Creek.
Since I began teaching, I have adapted my practices through inspirations of some amazing mentor teachers. It is because of those talented individuals that I now have a desire to help other teachers aspire to be better instructors. When we work collaboratively to create better practices, the students of Henry County are the real winners!
I graduated from The University of Alabama in 2002 with a BSE in Elementary Education. A few years later, I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology and Counseling from Troy University. From there, I attended Lincoln Memorial University and was awarded my Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership and Administration. Currently, I am working toward my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction through Columbus State University.
My family lives in Griffin with our dog, Cooper. My son and daughter attend elementary school in Henry County. My husband teaches self-contained MOID at Hampton High School. We are definitely a household of learners!
I love all things literary, but more importantly, I adore seeing students become addicted to text. I believe I will bring excitement, enthusiasm, and a sense of urgency to Dutchtown Elementary. I am eager to do my part in Ensuring Success for Each Student at Dutchtown.
