Hello Glen Arden parents and students!  I am thrilled to have been at Glen Arden Elementary for going on my 6th year and am very excited to continue to serve students and the community this year as Assistant Principal.  I have experience in health care and education serving as a Speech-Language Pathologist, and received my B.S. in Communication Disorders at the University of Central Florida and a M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology at Florida State University.  In 2006, I completed my Ed.S. degree in Educational Leadership through Western Carolina University. This is my 12th year as an Assistant Principal in Buncombe County Schools- and I have a passion in helping children grow as individuals, and in supporting parents and teachers to make every day a great day for children.  

One of my roles involves being the school's bus coordinator- please read the information below carefully.

School Bus Safety Rules

1. Treat all people with respect on the bus.
2. Be at your designated bus stop on time.
3. Do not eat or drink on the bus, tamper with bus seats, or throw objects.
4. Stay seated in your designated seat with bottom down and back against the seat.
5. Moving from seat to seat is not allowed unless directed by bus driver.
6. Keep your hands and feet inside the bus at all times. 
7. Follow bus driver directions and use RAM STAR behavior at all times.

** Children are regularly awarded RAM STAR award tickets to earn a variety of prizes and have their names announced for positive behavior on the bus!

*  Parents- please be aware that during the first few weeks of school there can be +/- 10 to 15 minutes of variability in the morning pick-up times and drop-off times due to student ridership fluctuating from day to day, large #'s of students changing from car to bus riders, etc. and throughout the year due to mechanical issues, sub drivers' lack of familiarity of the routes, weather related issues, etc.

 *  If a child will be changing their transportation plans in any way from the norm, parents need to send a handwritten note or faxed and note with a parent signature to the child's classroom teacher or school office.  EXAMPLE:  "My child ________ typically rides by 268, but for today ______ he will be a car rider".

*  No transportation changes will be accepted later than one hour before dismissal (which could be 1:30 pm for regular school days, and 11:30 am for early dismissal days , unless approved by an administrator in an emergency.

 *  Unfortunately, due to our buses typically being filled to capacity we do not allow students to ride with their friends and be dropped off for "play dates".
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  I can be reached at (828) 654-1800.  I am really looking forward to a great school year!

 Go GAES Rams!
