Jack P. Nix Families,

I am thrilled to serve another year as Principal of Jack P. Nix Elementary School!  I have been an educator in the White County School System since 2004.  During that time, I  have taught both elementary and middle school, served four years as Instructional Coach, worked three years as Assistant Principal, and currently serve as Principal.   I have a Bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from North Georgia College and State University.  I earned a Specialist's Degree in Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University.  My husband is Josh Hall, and I am the proud mother of two daughters, Maddie Kate and Kinsley, who are both students in White County School System. 

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year at JPN!  Our core values at JPN are JOY, TRUST, VALUE, and SERVICE.  As principal, my vision is for Jack P. Nix to be a place where everyone who walks through our doors can feel JOY. I want my staff to feel proud to be a part of this school and know in their hearts they are exactly where they need to be. I want this joy to trickle down to our students and families so that they, too, are proud to be a part of this school. TRUST is really important to me. I want our staff to know they can depend on me, and in turn, they can depend on one another.  I want our students to have the confidence that they can rely on the staff at our school to take care of them. My desire is that we VALUE one another at our school and treat one another with respect and kindness. I want students to look back on their elementary years at JPN and feel the love between our walls. Parent and community partnerships are key in this organization.  I want everyone to feel that they have a voice and are respected.  Having a heart of SERVICE is vital in our school. I want my staff to intentionally pour into others because they care about the organization as a whole and desire success for one another. JPN is a special place, and my heart wants everyone to believe that.

Our theme for this school year is “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats”.  Our staff has plans to participate in intense, rich professional learning this school year.  We feel that this professional learning for our staff will result in great overall GAINS for our students.  If we support the GROWTH of our teachers and staff in acquiring this new learning, our students will benefit, which is our ultimate goal.  Each of us play a vital role in the GROWTH of our school, and I  look forward to watching our students rise this school year!
