Principal's Message

Endy Elementary is the home of the Endy Redhawks where we S.O.A.R. to new heights!  Endy students ENCOURAGE OTHERS, NEVER GIVE UP, DO THEIR BEST AND YEARN TO LEARN.  Endy is the proud home of the Dual Language Immersion Program in Stanly County Schools.  Endy will be applying for a North Carolina Global Recognition in the 2020 - 2021 school year.  Our goal is that all students develop cultural awareness, competence and communication skills that will support their success after graduation.  Through outreach, technology, collaborative studies and innovative teaching, students will embrace a global awareness and increased global literacy. 


As the new principal of Endy Elementary School, I am so excited and honored to be a Redhawk.  The Endy Redhawk name carries a superb reputation that is not taken lightly.  I continue to be impressed with the involvement and support that is provided from the families and community.  


As a principal, I continue to seek opportunities to grow as a professional educator and stay abreast of innovative teaching and ideas in education.  I currently serve as an NCDPI Commissioner on the North Carolina Textbook Commission.  This allows me to collaborate with leaders from across the state and provide a voice for Stanly County at the state level.  I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University and a Master of Arts in Education: Educational Leadership at Wingate University.  This is my 14th year in education and second year in Stanly County.  I have experience in education at all levels K - 12 but my passion is in the elementary schools. 


My goal for Endy Elementary is to provide a safe and positive learning environment that fosters success.  Success will be achieved through high academic expectations, character education, student centered learning and enrichment through all disciplines.  I look forward to welcoming you on campus and continuing to push Endy to new heights!
