Welcome to Adamsville Elementary School
Welcome to Adamsville Elementary School. I am excited to be your Principal this 2016-2017 school year. This is my third year at Adamsville Elementary (AES). Prior to coming to AES, I was the Assistant Principal at Chalkville Elementary School, the Administrative Director at Mitchell's Place, the Preschool Special Education Director for Mountain Brook City Schools and a special education teacher in the Mountain Brook City Schools. I have been in education for the past 20 years. I am also a mother and a wife. I have an 18 year old son and 12 year old twin step-daughters.
