Something MAGICAL is coming to Holly Springs!


Thank you for your interest in Woods Creek Elementary, a year-round elementary school opening in July 2024.


I count it the highest honor and privilege to serve as the founding principal of Woods Creek Elementary.  My career in education spans over 20 years, with ten of those as a classroom teacher. My time in the classroom holds the biggest piece of my heart, as that is where the true work happens.


I value that education is people centered, and nothing is possible if our students do not feel safe, valued, and cared for.  Stepping into administration, it has always been my priority to make sure classroom teachers and staff are supported in their efforts to provide engaging and rigorous instruction that meets the demands of our evolving world.  


Woods Creek Elementary will be a learning community that is rooted in the Core Beliefs of the Wake County Public School System's Strategic Plan. Staff will be committed to engaging and growing each student in a state-of-the-art learning environment that only enhances the MAGIC of Learning. 


I look forward to partnering with the community and creating a learning environment where students, staff, and families thrive.
