Welcome to Gilbert Linkous Elementary,
Home of the Linkous Lizards!

I am honored and delighted to serve as the principal of Gilbert Linkous Elementary School, where the daily goal is to provide the very best education possible to every student entrusted to our care. My experience in education includes 9 years as a classroom teacher, 6 years as a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach, and the past 10 years as a school administrator.   

I earned my BS at Ferrum College, my MA at VA Tech, and completed coursework for my administration/supervision endorsement  through a cohort program at UVA.  

I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful school where teachers and families are fully committed to student success. The staff and students of Gilbert Linkous Elementary practice our 3R’s every day - Respect, Responsibility, and Ready for Learning!
