Hello Draper Elementary School Families!
I am very excited to join the Bulldogs Family at Draper Elementary School. I grew up in Stoneville and graduated from Morehead High School, so it is an honor to serve the local area that is my home. Prior to coming to Draper, I served as Assistant Principal at Western Rockingham Middle, Moss Street Elementary, and Stoneville, and Central Elementary schools. I have taught 1st, 4th, and 5th grades. I have an Elementary Education degree from Greensboro College, a Masters in Educational Administration from Old Dominion University, an Educational Specialist degree from UNCG, and am currently pursuing my doctorate in School Leadership.
I know that children learn in different ways. I believe that developing a love for reading is fundamental for students to have success. I believe in creating a safe environment where students can explore and thrive to compete globally. Draper Elementary is an inviting school where classrooms are alive with collaboration and the use of technology to enhance lessons. Innovation, creativity, and putting students first is key at Draper!
Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for your support of Draper Elementary.
In Bulldog Pride,
Christy Ann Bailey
