Change for our Tharptown Community

Image for Change for our Tharptown Community

     Good day to all invested in our Tharptown Elementary community.  This is an exciting time for our community.  We have had a great deal of growth, and change over the previous year.  I am thankful that God has allowed my wife and I to be part of that growth and change.  This year will be one consisting of improvement upon past academic successes with a focus on the development of fundamental foundational reading that promotes growth in our comprehension abilities.

     Before discussing our academic direction this year, let me introduce myself to our Tharptown community.  My name is Kelby F. Daniel.  I am originally from a small, rural town called Collinwood, Tennessee.  Education has been my career for over 17 years.  Prior to coming to Tharptown Elementary, I spent 5 years Teaching/Coaching in Tennessee, and then the past 12 years were spent in Russellville at West Elementary as a Teacher/Coach/Administrator.  Again, we are so thankful to be here as part of this community of learners.
