Principal's Message

Welcome to the Cape Hatteras Elementary School’s website. It is a tremendous honor to be the Principal of CHES. I look forward to creating strong and collaborative relationships with the staff, students, and parents of this great community. Our school is a special place. I am overjoyed to have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of students and teachers.

My vision for CHES is to continue to build an ideal school environment where students feel safe, comfortable, challenged and engaged in class; Where students and staff will celebrate core values and each other; Where teachers will feel supported in their teaching and inspired to try new things; Where teaching and assessments will be standards-based, instruction will be data-driven, and collaboration will be purposeful; Where parents will be involved in school activities and classrooms, and teachers and parents will work collaboratively to support their students. My goal is to be in the classrooms “where the action is” in order to support the teachers, students, and to assess the needs of our school.  My goal is that together we can make all of these characteristics of an ideal school come to fruition because only together is this possible. Thank you for taking on this challenge with me to benefit and support your child at CHES. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children each and every day while providing them a world-class learning environment.
