Principal's Corner


It is an absolute honor to come back to where it all started for me--Union Springs Elementary School (USES).  Although I am in an administrator role, the love for the students is even greater. I am privileged to have the opportunity to work with a wonderful staff! Their talents and dedication to the students are impeccable.  At USES, we create an active learning environment that is rigorous, but differentiated, meeting the needs of each student. We also believe that learning should be fun and exciting and we pride ourselves on taking risks, growing from mistakes and supporting each other daily.


I look forward to seeing every parent around campus at some point this year. Please come and see the amazing things going on at Union Springs Elementary School.  It would be my pleasure to speak with each of you about our district’s mission to facilitate learning in safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment, producing college and career-ready students.


Please assist us in fulfilling our mission by reviewing the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct. Together, everyone achieves more!


Success begins with you! Go Bears!
