   Winding Creek Elementary School is a very special place, and it is my priviledge to serve the community as its principal!  At Winding Creek we are family, which is expressed with the phrase, "Once a Wolf, Always a Wolf."  We are a family that believes in each other, supports each other, and brings out the best in each other.  We set the bar high for our students and ourselves.  As teachers and staff, our goal for your child is expressed best by describing the Winding Creek Learner Profile, which is for our students to leave Winding Creek as a creator, collaborator, communicator, and critical thinker with outstanding character and a growth mindset.  Home and school are a team that works together, and we look forward to building a strong partnership to support your child's success.

    I have been in education for over 30 years.  I am orginially from Arkansas, and as a military wife, I have had the great opportunity to teach in a variety of locations in and out of the country.  My family moved to Stafford, Virginia in 2002, after my husband retired from 22 years in the Army.  I have two wonderful daughters who are graduates of Stafford schools.  Having had the opportunity to teach in a variety of schools and school districts, I am proud to be a part of an excellent school system with high standards, and although we are in unpredicented times with Covid, we will rise to the challenges and come out even better on the other side.  Together, we can accomplish anything!  Welcome to The Creek!!
