Welcome to Willow Brook Elementary School! It is an honor to be named Interim Principal at WBES!

I take pride in providing a culture and environment where all students can succeed at a high level.  Our top priority is to provide a safe and structured learning environment for all students each day.  We have an amazing staff that works hard in a collaborative approach to serve the whole child.

Through our Oak Ridge Schools’ Portrait of a Graduate framework, we work to build upon and lay a strong foundation in the skills detailed in our POG.  Additionally, we are very proud of our STEM journey at Willow Brook and most recently completed our Cognia STEM Recertification in February of 2021.

Communication is a key component of your child’s success and I encourage you to reach out to our administrative team and your child’s teachers if we can assist in any way.  You can find up to date information in our Parent Newsletter sent out every Sunday evening.

We have a wonderful PTO, as well as many community partners who provide support to our teachers and students.  We encourage you to continue supporting your child’s success by being an active participant in their education and keeping the lines of communication open at all times.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can assist in your child’s educational journey at any time.
