Principal: Mrs. Lisa Daniel
I began my career in Florida after earning a BSEd in Specific Learning Disabilities from Athens State University in Athens, Alabama. While teaching special education at the high school, middle school, and elementary levels, I earned my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of South Florida. Upon completing 10 years of service in Florida, my family moved to the great state of Georgia where I began my administrative career at Oconee County Middle School. After four years, I moved into the central office in Oconee County to serve all of the elementary schools in the role of K-5 Curriculum Director. While there I earned my EDS in Teaching and Learning from Piedmont College. Seven years later, I made the best move of my career to the fabulous Morgan County.
My family and I have fallen in love with Morgan County and all of the wonderful community here! My husband, Shane and I have five children from the ages of 22 - 28 and one grandchild who just turned a year old. We enjoy our time on the lake - fishing, boating, and swimming and hunting our two hound dogs. We spend most of our breaks in Nicaragua serving the people there through a ministry called Christ Thru Baseball.
I am looking forward to another amazing school year and working with all of our MCPS family to ensure success for our students in this year and beyond.
I am honored to serve as the Assistant Principal at Morgan County Primary School. I am a native of Madison and still live here with my husband, three children, and granddaughter. I am a proud graduate of Morgan County High School. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Piedmont College in 2008 and attended graduate school there as well and earned a Master of Education degree in 2009 and a Specialist degree in 2012. I taught 1st and 2nd grade at Morgan County Primary for eight years. As an educator, I am a lifelong learner who is passionate about helping individual students reach their fullest potential. I believe that the primary school years are critical in the future success of a student and that the instructional program must be a unique one that considers physical, social, intellectual, and emotional development. I am also committed to providing the support and professional development that teachers need to meet the needs of today’s 21st century learner. I am excited to see what this school year holds for us here at Morgan County Primary School.
I am so excited to join the Morgan County family! I am coming to you from Rockdale County Public Schools where I served for 10 years at J.H. House Elementary School. I was a second grade teacher for three years, third grade teacher for four years, and an Early Intervention Program (EIP) teacher for one year serving students in kindergarten through fourth grade. For the last three years, I have been the Academic Coach. While in that role, I was the RTI Coordinator and the Co-Testing Coordinator. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at Georgia State University. I then earned my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from NOVA Southeastern University. Most recently, I completed my Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from Columbus State University.
On a more personal note, I am married to the wonderful Dustin Mitchell. We have a beautiful 9-year-old daughter, Riley. All three of us are looking forward to moving to Morgan County and joining this amazing community.
Educating children is truly my passion. I am dedicated to working with my fellow colleagues to provide a world-class education for our students. It is my goal to ensure that all children are successful, in their individual ways, so that they become productive citizens in this ever-changing society.
Here to serve,
