Greetings RCES Families!
My name is Dr. Chastity Evans. I’m honored and humbled to have been chosen as your principal for Richard Carroll Elementary School. It is a privilege to serve this school community and I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and your children.
Congratulations! You have survived a very challenging year in education. Although it wasn’t easy, we made it. Not only did we make it, throughout this journey we learned more about ourselves, how to teach virtually, and how to learn more effectively than we ever thought possible.
In saying that, I think we can all agree that we are looking forward to returning to a more normal school year. I know I am. Now it is time to take what we learned and apply it going forward.
As the principal and instructional leader of RCES, it is important for you to know my beliefs about teaching and learning.
I believe that ALL students can learn when provided the right tools.
I believe through rigor and relevant teaching practices we can provide academic, social, and emotional success for all students. #GrowthMindset
I believe that every student deserves to have teachers and administrators who have their best interests in mind and NEVER give up on them.
While this is not a comprehensive list of beliefs, it is the foundation from which I lead and guides how I make decisions that are in the best interests of all students.
I am very excited to be a part of the RCES community! If you have any questions, concerns, or celebrations that you would like to share, please know that my door is always open. I look forward to getting to know you.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer!
Chastity Evans, PhD
