Supervisor (Principal)

I have been very honored to work for the Putnam County VITAL program for the past 5 years. First, I was an Onsite Facilitator for Online Learning at a local high school where I "cut my teeth" and gained knowledge of personal learning. I then moved to the leadership role as Personal Learning Coordinator for Putnam County Schools in Cookeville, TN. We have grown the VITAL program in Putnam County to include credit advancement/credit recovery, dual enrollment, IVC (live) distance learning, K-12 blended learning, as well as offering professional development for the 20 schools within our district. VITAL started a district homeschool, as well as an early college (dual enrollment) beginning in the fall of 2014. We hosted 17 site visits last year from districts interested in the operation of our district led personal learning program.

VITAL is very excited to offer a personal learning opportunities to Putnam County students, as well as, students around the Upper Cumberland area. Currently courses are offered for students in Grades 3-12 during the regular school year.

The mission of the Virtual Instruction to Accentuate Learning (VITAL) Program is to provide students with a high quality, flexible, technology-based educational opportunity that allows them to maximize their potential to serve and participate productively in 21st century society in an anytime/anywhere atmosphere.
