It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly selected principal at Crossroads Elementary. I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a reputation for fostering the feel of togetherness, caring and high academic expectations.
I have been dedicated to the field of education for twenty-two years. After teaching middle school science for ten years, I moved back home to Bath County to work as a Guidance Counselor serving the high school, Bethel and Salt Lick Elementary schools. For the past 5 years, Crossroads’ has been my home, serving as Assistant Principal. I am elated to be able to work in the capacity of Principal at CES and continue to serve the outstanding students, families, teachers and staff in our building!
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the strong legacy of success established at CES. We are very eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever! We will focus on building strong relationships with all stakeholders-most of all our students, character education, Common Core Skills, use of data to inform instruction, enrichment opportunities for all and “Moving” CES!
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through the doors at CES – teachers, students and parents – are excited to be here! This attitude enables us all to meet challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, nurturing environment!!! My door is always open and I welcome your input, suggestions, concerns or ideas to help make this the best year yet!
Mrs. Lorinda Rogers Jamison
Principal, Crossroads Elementary
