Welcome to Elkhart Elementary! I'm so excited to be a part of this staff who makes my job easier, just by their commitment to children and their devotion to teaching.
Elkhart is a very special place to me, going to school here from Kindergarten through 12th grade, teaching 3rd and 4th grades here for 20 years, working as an assistant principal for 3 years, and presently, serving as the principal for 6 years.
I am married to Greg Herring, the principal at Elkhart Intermediate, and we have 2 grown children, (who also went to Elkhart schools for Kindergarten through 12th grades,) and now have 3 of our 6 grandchildren attending Elkhart schools.
Our goal here is to provide students a cooperative and family atmosphere where differences are celebrated and strengths are focused upon. That's why our school motto is "Elkhart Elementary is a GREAT place to learn!" And it is.........
