       Welcome to Fairview Elementary

    Welcome to Eagle Nation!  We are so happy to have you here at our school. I am so proud of the work of our students, faculty, staff, parents and community. We have a great school , and it has supported this community for close to 96 years.  

       I love being an educator .  This is my 8th year as Principal of Fairview Elementary. I love teaching, curriculum and instruction.  Even as a child going to my mother's classroom on teacher workdays , working on her bulletin boards and rearranging her classroom, I dreamed of teaching one day.  However, before working in education, I tried another career as a Systems Analyst, but knew my heart belonged to teaching. My undergraduate degree is from Spelman College in Computer Science with a Business Administration minor and I have a Master's degree from Atlanta University in Computer Science. I obtained additional studies in order to complete my education requirement in first, Middle Grades Education and later Elementary Education. I have a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Troy State University, a Specialist and Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Supervision from Clark Atlanta University.
       I love working with children, watching the ocean, touring different places, learning new things, traveling, Broadway plays, and watching basketball. I am the proud mother of one adult son, and one son who is a junior in college. It is my hope that each student will do their very best, be their own person, think for themselves, be original, and allow themselves to shine! Think high and dream big!
