    Welcome to Corkscrew Elementary School! As the Proud Principal of an “A” rated school, here at CES, Excellence is Expected! Our school’s mission is to foster a learning community where students engage in experiences that develop self-confidence and a love of learning resulting in respectful and responsible citizens. CES students show each and every day they are digital learners, global citizens and forward thinkers!


    Last year, Corkscrew Elementary became a FranklinCovey Leader in Me school, focusing on learning and living the 7 Habits, in order to strengthen leadership skills. This year, we continue our Leader in Me journey, “Growing Leaders One Habit at a Time”. Students, staff and CES families continue to be foundation and core of CES and through the 7 Habits, students will thrive in the areas of academics, creating a positive culture and building their own leadership. 


    Our dedicated and caring faculty and staff create an environment that is focused on student engagement, rigor in the classroom and innovative learning. I know the beginning of this year is quite different than the previous 21 openings of Corkscrew Elementary but with all of our stakeholders working collaboratively, this one will be the best one yet! We look forward to continuing to educate our CES Bears while supporting their social emotional learning.


    We can’t wait to see all of our little Bears return to Corkscrew Elementary August 31st!

    Assistant Principal

    As your new assistant principal, it is a privilege to join a fabulous staff, and to have an opportunity to work with our amazing students, dedicated parents, and wonderful community leaders.  I’ve been in education over 20 years in a variety of roles beginning as an elementary teacher, then moving on to teach at the high school level.  I stepped out of the classroom and worked as the testing coordinator, but my love of learning pushed me into my next role as a reading coach at the high school level, and then returning to my roots as a reading coach at the elementary level.  My career path then took me to begin my administrative experience as the dean of students, then as an assistant principal at the middle school level; however, once again, I returned to my elementary roots and for the last 3 years, I’ve been an assistant principal at Eden Park Elementary.  I look forward to working with you and continuing the success that has been established at Corkscrew Elementary.
