Principal Page


I would like to take this opportunity to talk about the honor it is being the principal of Shaffer Elementary. Everyday I look forward coming to work and interacting with the staff, students, and community in order to create an atmosphere where all individuals feel welcome and validated. I am truly grateful to be your principal and look forward to seeing what the future offers.

My education endeavor began in Orange County, Florida at an inner city Title One School. While teaching in a highly impacted area, I developed a keen understanding of how important it is to build relationships with students, family, and the community in order to turn challenges into successes. Four years after gaining skills to work with various populations, I returned to Jefferson County, the district in which I attended kindergarten through high school.  After teaching first and sixth grade in Jefferson County, I eventually became an Administrator for the district.

As an educator and parent of a child who attends a Jefferson County school, I understand the importance of providing students with the most current content rich curriculum. Shaffer Elementary shares this belief with me as evidenced from the school culture displayed. My vision for Shaffer Elementary is to continue this strong academic success while providing a culture of 21st century learners, in which our school becomes a model for other schools. Our building’s achievements and opportunities should not be limited to the walls that surround us, but rather spread out into the communities that our students call home.

Being a life-long learner is something that my teachers instilled in me throughout my educational career, and I believe our teachers here at Shaffer Elementary strive to continue this contribution with their teaching. Together as educators and a community, we will make this year and the ones to follow successful in order to shape our community for the better.
