I am so excited to be the Principal here at Maury City Elementary!!! I am thrilled to work with such a wonderful faculty and staff. We had such a great 2015 - 2016 school year!!!! We have added some wonderful new staff to our school for this coming year! I hope we can work together to have an even better 2016 - 2017 school year!!
Let me take a minute to tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Memphis, but my family is from Michigan. That is why I chose Michigan for my college!!! Go Wolverines! I earned my Bachelor's degree from The University of Tennessee at Martin, in Human Learning K - 8. I earned my Master's degree, in Educational Leadership, from Trevecca Nazerene University in Nashville.
Throughout my career I taught second grade for two years at Arlington Elementary in Shelby County. Two years teaching kindergarten and 5th & 6th grade reading and math intervention at Alamo City School. 5 years of teaching kindergarten and 4th and 5th grade math at Gadsden Elementary, 1 year of being an Assistant Principal at CCMS, and successfully completed my first year as principal! I am looking forward to the rewards and challenges that my second year as principal has in store for me!
I am married to Jonathan Dodd and we have a beautiful 4 year old daughter named Bradlee. We reside in Friendship, Tennessee. We are members at Providence Baptist Church in Crockett Mills. We enjoy time with family and friends, time at the lake, and any activity that you can do outdoors!!
I think that it is important for you to know that I LOVE what I do!!! I love coming to work every day and seeing all your precious children. I am here for you so please feel free to contact me if you need anything! I look forward to a great year!!!
