Dear Parents,

As the Principal of Tatum Elementary School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be the leader of this great school. Tatum Elementary School builds an atmosphere of academic and cultural excellence that is the result of a mutual partnership between the school staff and our parents who provide a variety of experiences for the students. I am truly honored to be appointed to this position and love working with a dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.

Through a close and collegial partnership with everyone associated with Tatum Elementary School, I am confident we can make our school an ideal home away from home for our students to learn and grow.

At TES, we take very personally the success of our students, and will work diligently to enhance their learning experiences beyond just a typical classroom setting, including but not limited to our unique after school programs. The TES faculty is second to none, and with a common vision of building positive relationships and increasing all students’ achievement, we will show everyone what "STANDING OUT" is all about!

Should you have any comments, questions or concerns, please know I am here to help. Again, I'm privileged and honored to have this opportunity to serve your children.
