    It is my pleasure to serve as the principal of Margaret Hearne Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year! I'm very excited about this school year to be working with all of the students, staff, families, and the community in which we serve.

    This is my first year as principal and my eleventh year in education. Hearne is not a new place for me as I previously taught here for 5 years as a reading specialist. I am thrilled to be back with so many familiar faces!

    I am originally from Wilmington, North Carolina and love going back to visit the beach. I attended East Carolina University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. Go PIRATES!

    In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, cooking, and traveling.

    I believe that all children have the potential to be successful. With hard work and dedication we can make that happen. We are the beginning foundation for your child's educational career and we strive to make it the strongest foundation possible. Let's all work together to ensure each child's success.

    Here's to a Hearne-tastic year!
