Our Principal

coming soon

Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year!


This will be an amazing year filled with incredible learning and building relationships.  I have been truly honored to serve the Bassett community as an educator for the past 11 years, both in the classroom and at the district office.  I am grateful to now serve in the role of Principal at Van Wig Elementary, home of the Wildcat Scholars.


Our vision at Van Wig is to educate students to think creatively, act responsibly, and communicate effectively in order to be successful members of society and make a positive impact on the lives of others.  These ideas are the cornerstone of a 21st century education and are what motivates the experiences teachers provide their students in the classroom.  Because we hold high expectations for students to be college bound, Van Wig has been a “No Excuses University” school for several years.  Our teachers truly believe all students can and will succeed and upholds the No Excuses philosophy that all students deserve an education that prepares them to attend college. 


Please know my door is open to you.  Do not hesitate to visit, email, or call should you have any questions or concerns.  I highly encourage you to be an active participant by attending Coffee with the Principal, becoming a member of PTSA, or serving on the School Site Council.  Please actively engage in Class Dojo and visit our website often for important information, updates, and announcements.

Van Wig is an amazing school with extraordinary teachers, staff, students and parents. 


We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional academics, meaningful activities, and enriching opportunities that have consistently been afforded to our students.  I look forward to working alongside you throughout the upcoming school year.
