Principal's Message


Dear Tuscarora Students and Families,

I am thrilled to be here at Tuscarora Elementary School as Principal this year! I have heard about, and now seen first hand, the wonderful collaboration between this amazing school and engaged community.

Before coming to Tuscarora Elementary, I had the pleasure of serving as Acting Principal of Liberty Elementary School. Prior to that, I was Curriculum Specialist for Elementary Science for several years. From 2010 – 2012, I was fortunate to be at Centerville Elementary School as Assistant Principal where I was able to learn from Principal Raff. Throughout my many years as an educator with FCPS, I have had the privilege to work with students and staff as a classroom teacher, a special educator, an interventionist and a teacher specialist.

I believe that education is much more than ensuring students have content knowledge or skills. It is the shaping of mindsets and the building of character. It is easy to see that all of these things are important to the students, staff and families of Tuscarora Elementary!
