I am excited to serve as the Principal of Jenkins Elementary School.  I believe in every student.  The safety of our students and staff is important to me, and I also work hard to make sure that we have a welcoming, clean learning environment at Jenkins Elementary.  Our staff will work hard to make sure that each student grows academically and socially.  At Jenkins Elementary, we personalize the education for every student so that he/she is able to reach his/her full potential academically.

Jenkins Elementary has a tradition of excellence.  We have a student-centered environment and every student is a member of our school family.  We have talented teachers and a dedicated support staff.  The education we provide at Jenkins Elementary is simply the best.
