I am very honored to be the new principal at Cowan Road Middle School. I am joining the CRMS family from Gwinnett County Public Schools where I served as the assistant principal of Minor Elementary School for the past four years. Prior to moving to Gwinnett, I was the assistant principal of Upson-Lee Middle School in Thomaston, Georgia for over four years. Before making the transition to a leadership role I taught 8th Grade Georgia Studies for six years in the Clayton County School System. I received my bachelor’s degree in middle grade education and my master’s degree, specialist degree, and doctorate in education leadership from the University of Georgia. I am looking forward to serving the students and faculty at Cowan Road Middle School and building a relationship with the community and all stakeholders at Cowan. I am committed to the success of our students, faculty and community. It is my firm belief that failure is not an option at CRMS.
