On behalf of our amazing faculty and staff, Mrs. Appleby and I would like to welcome our students to school for another great year! We appreciate the opportunity for a successful partnership with our parents and school community as we grow and nurture your precious children in their first years of school!

It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal of Robert F. Elementary and follow in the footsteps of dedicated administrators such as Dena McRee, Kathy Schwab, Stephanie Mason, and Josette Williams.  I was fortunate to be here when we opened the doors of Woodall in 1993. When I returned to Woodall in 2014 it was like coming back home! 

After earning a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood and a Masters degree in Elementary Education at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC, I moved to Tennessee and began my teaching career in Robertson County Schools. In 2003, I earned a Masters degree in Library and Information Science at Trevecca Nazarene University and then followed with an endorsement in Educational Leadership and Administration from Bethel University. I served 11 years in the classroom (Watauga, White House Elementary and Woodall) and 13 years in Related Arts (Woodall, H.B. Williams Elementary, and WH Heritage High) before becoming the Assistant Principal at Woodall.

Our staff and parent/teacher organization are amazing and dedicated to partnering with our school community in order to support student learning and grow productive citizens.

Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or would like to be a part of our journey as we grow and learn!
