Principal's Message

Welcome to Collierville Elementary School!
I am honored and excited to embark on my third year as the principal of CES. Our vision at Collierville Elementary School remains steadfast: we will forge Little Dragons who demonstrate strong character, and a love for learning and serve as future leaders. Our mission is unwavering as well — to surround our Little Dragons with love, hold them to high expectations, and engage them in rigorous instruction.
I firmly believe in the potential of ALL students to learn and flourish, and I am committed to delivering high-quality instruction tailored to their unique needs. The cornerstone of student growth lies in fostering meaningful relationships, and I am dedicated to ensuring that your child(ren) thrives in their learning, leadership, and life endeavors.
My aspiration is to cultivate a school environment where we not only understand our students deeply but also bolster their self-assurance and equip them with the essential tools for both academic success and positive societal impact. I eagerly anticipate collaborating with the entire Collierville Elementary School community. Together, we form a cohesive TEAM united in our vision and mission to make Collierville Elementary School the greatest school in Tennessee.
Thank you for entrusting us with the education and growth of your Little Dragons. Here's to a year filled with accomplishment, learning, and endless possibilities.
Go Dragons!
