Head of Elementary

Donelson Christian Academy has been an integral part of my educational and personal life since before I was born. My mother has been a teacher here for 37 years, my siblings and I all grew up attending DCA, and now my own children are students here as well. As a student at DCA, I was blessed with the most creative and innovative educators that shaped who I would eventually become. Because of this experience, DCA is where I found my calling to be a part of the educational realm. Not only did I make life-long friends while attending school, I was able to grow and strengthen my relationship and passion for Christ. As an alumni of DCA, a current parent, a teacher, and now principal, this is why I consider DCA my home. 


My goal for DCA is to help each student reach their greatest potential as they grow academically, physically, and spiritually while partnering with parents, faculty, and members of the community. We are blessed with caring and loving educators that are devoted to integrating faith in learning and are invested in the mission of DCA by creating life-long learners and Christ-like leaders in the home, church, and community.


DCA is not just a school to us, it is a family.
