Welcome to North LaFayette Elementary School and Rambler Nation!
We are proud to be part of our community. At NLE, we are student focused and we are dedicated to enabling our students to achieve academically. Not only do we strive to increase academic achievement, but we also immerse our students in various clubs and athletic opportunities.
Our school theme this year is Better Than Ever! We are NLE and we are Better Than Ever! The staff has so many exciting things happening from academic and leadership teams to book studies and weekly professional development. At NLE, we have a highly endorsed staff ready to pour into our students.
We would love for you to assist as a volunteer and be a part of our school. Volunteer opportunities can be scheduled through our Family Engagement Coordinator. We also have a very active PTO and I encourage you to join! NLE has a full calendar of school events, so please attend! We want to partner with you and we want you to be involved in your child’s education.
Ensure you receive my weekly newsletter and know our teachers have an array of communication tools as well! Make sure you have signed up for your teacher’s Remind or ClassDojo, check the orange communication folder, and follow North LaFayette Elementary on Facebook. We appreciate all parent input and communication.
It is an honor to serve the students, parents, staff and community of North LaFayette Elementary. I have spent both my childhood as a student and my adult career at North LaFayette Elementary. I am proud to be a product of Walker County and Rambler Nation!
The bulk of my teaching career was spent in 5th grade. I have also served as assistant principal for two years before taking on the job as principal. I am a proud graduate of Jacksonville State University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Merchandising/Marketing, Grand Canyon University with a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and I am currently pursuing my Education Specialist Degree in Tier II Educational Leadership from Kennesaw State University. I am certified in Elementary Education PreK-5th grades, Special Education PreK-12th grades and hold a Mathematics Endorsement Kindergarten-5th grades.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Clay. We have two children, Catie and Jack. We are all proud graduates of North LaFayette Elementary, LaFayette Middle School and LaFayette High School!
It is going to be a year that is Better Than Ever! Thank you for allowing me to do this amazing job each and every day!
