Hello, Glen Arden students and families! My name is Jamie Slagle and I am honored to be the principal of Glen Arden Elementary School.
After graduating from Western Carolina University in 1999, I began my career teaching 2nd grade at Leicester Elementary for 12 years before moving to a 5th grade classroom at Eblen Intermediate School. After teaching at Eblen, I served several schools in the North Buncombe district as an Elementary and Intermediate Instructional Coach. During my time as an instructional coach, I pursued my Masters in Executive Leadership Studies through Gardner Webb University. For the last 9 years, I have served as Assistant Principal at Fairview Elementary School.
Glen Arden is proud to be a Leader In Me School as well as home to the Spanish Immersion Program! There are numerous opportunities for students to grow and develop personally, socially, emotionally, and academically at Glen Arden Elementary.
I look forward to serving the students, staff, families, and community of Glen Arden Elementary School! Glen Arden is a special place where students grow as leaders, readers, writers, and mathematicians every day. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive learning environment as we prepare students for their tomorrow.
