  • The vision of the E.E Jeter K-8’s leadership team is to ensure that our school is a great place to teach and an even greater place to learn. With this vision in mind, our focus is centered on students teachers, the Shelby Forest community and everyone who supports our school. Our students’ high success rates speak to me effectiveness of E.E Jeter teachers’ hard work.

    Students are celebrated monthly with Jeter Bucks days, where their earnings are redeemed for rewards. Additionally, we offer our students options to explore agricultural Science, an honors core, music, art, creative writing, intramural basketball, CLUE, library, and physical education.

    Students express themselves through a monthly “Club Day” where they bond with peers to skateboard, paint pour, play musical instruments, dance, game, explore STEM, and play chess.

    We are a literacy focused school, and this year we purchased all new furniture for our school library – one of our students’ favorite places in the building. The furniture is colorful, age appropriate, comfortable and a sure place for students to cozy up to a good book. There is seldom a time when we are not celebrating literacy – whether through decorating literacy themed Christmas trees. Novel Series Kickoffs, Literacy Night or Read Across America. It is literacy that drives our students’ success.

    As principal, I succeed only with the help of others. On the toughest days, I lean on my faith and the help of our school – based leadership team. It is hard to believe that E.E Jeter has stood 100 years – there are many generations that have laughed, learned and listened within these walls. It is the honor of my life to serve all our stakeholders, and I am grateful to be here. Cheers to another 100 years!
