Principal's Message

Welcome to Gadsden Elementary School’s Website!


 I am a proud Panther, newly appointed Principal for Gadsden Elementary School (GES) and want to welcome you to our amazing school.  I have been in education for twenty-six years and I feel honored and privileged to have the opportunity to work with outstanding educators, students, parents, district, and community!  Living and teaching in the community has equipped me with a wealth of experiences and opportunities I will rely upon as I serve my Gadsden family.


Sharing the common goal of student success is what motivates GES teachers, staff and I to do our personal best to meet every child’s educational and personal goals to become an outstanding member of society.   We are committed to the achievement of every student in a safe learning environment.   We take pride in the education of our students.  Our ultimate mission is to ensure our students success in our community and in a global society by preparing them to be life-long learners, college and career ready.  


Our school motto that we live by is “Dream, Believe, and Achieve!”  Our staff, students, and community believe in the endless possibilities for our students which is why we empower our students through their talents via extra-curricular activities that include:  Panther band, dance, jazz band, robotics, science clubs, and more.  Our Panther students are preparing with tools to persevere in life.  Pursuing and exceeding academic and social goals for our students is our priority.


You are invited to join our effort in making a difference in our students’ lives.  In doing so, I thank you in advance for all your support, dedication and commitment to our students.  Together we can make great things happen at GES.
