Principal's Message

Dear John Adams Family Members,

As the newly appointed Principal of John Adams Elementary School, it is my pleasure and honor to join the Adams Family.  I am excited to work with JAES students, staff and family members in our efforts to advance the achievement of each student in our school.  The traditions and accomplishments JAES has experienced are tremendous, and I look forward to helping our school continue to develop and grow.  Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a challenging and enriching school experience.  I am eager to embark upon our new journey!


I have worked as an administrator in Washington County Schools for the past 10 years, most recently serving as the Principal of Ridgeview Elementary.  Before becoming an administrator, I was a middle school math and reading teacher at West View School.


Please contact me if I can be of assistant to you in any way.  Feel free to stop by and say hello, as my door is always open to you.  I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your children.
