Principal's Message

Welcome to Little Mountain Elementary School

“Lead with love” is the message that I introduced to the faculty and staff seven years ago when I began my journey as principal of Little Mountain Elementary. The vision of Little Mountain Elementary begins with the high expectations that our faculty and staff remain life-long learners and model professionalism as well as live each day with high values, morals, and ethics. Every adult in our building, no matter what they do, is to nurture all students in becoming healthy, responsible, and confident citizens of the world. A rigorous curriculum provided by caring facilitators promotes an atmosphere where children want to come to school and learn. In 2016, our faculty and staff worked to create a new and updated mission statement for our school: The faculty and staff will prepare responsible leaders and motivated learners who contribute to our school and community. We will do this by working as a team to live, model, and teach the 7 Habits.

This is my twenty-first year in education, serving twenty of those years with The School District of Newberry County. I attended Little Mountain Elementary as a child and graduated from Mid-Carolina High School. As a matter of fact, my daughter was a fifth generation student at Little Mountain Elementary. My heart is invested in LME and all the right people are in place for LME to "move mountains."
