Worthington Elementary has approximately 360 students enrolled in grades Pre K-6. The building is staffed by highly qualified professionals that are dedicated to providing a safe and enriching learning environment, conducive to student success and student achievement. Many educational as well as leadership opportunities are provided to all students. We are “A Leader in Me” school which incorporates Dr. Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into our curriculum. Our school mission statement is Choose to Lead… Make a Difference.

I feel honored and privileged to serve the Worthington Community. I believe teamwork and open communication are very important and know that together we will continue to ensure a positive and productive learning environment for our students. I am thrilled to help support the students, parents, staff and community in their quest of academic excellence.

My primary goal this year is to improve teaching and learning.  Together we will help each student reach his or her maximum potential. Another goal is to increase parental support.  We know that it takes all of us to help our students be their best.

This year we are focused on the importance of  RESPECT.  Respect for Yourself, Respect for Others, and Respect for Your School.
