Principal's Bio


Archdale Elementary School - The best school in North Carolina!

I can not express what a blessing it is to remain at Archdale, having served as the Assistant Principal during the 2018-2019 school year! I am honored to serve as your principal and to be the lead learner on a team of teachers, support staff, students, parents, and volunteers who are committed to academic excellence! As I embark on my twelfth year in education, I am excited to champion authentic learning experiences for our students and build meaningful relationships with the members of our school community. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe, supportive learning environment for all students. 


Archdale Elementary is a wonderful place and if you would like to have more information, would like to volunteer, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me by email or phone at or 336-431-9121. I look forward to a fabulous year and growing together!
