Amanda P. Rice is the new principal at Waverly Elementary/Middle School and she can’t wait to expose her students to the kinds of experiences and opportunities that will create leaders in them all.
With seven years as a school administrator under her belt, Ms. Rice brings enthusiastic energy and a wealth of experience as the new principal at Waverly. She previously served as the Assistant Principal at Cross Country Elementary/Middle School for two years and as the Principal at George Washington Elementary School for four.
“I look forward to working along with the outstanding team of teachers here at Waverly, parents, and community members to make goals achievable,” she says. Working alongside team members like GHCC Community School Site Coordinator, Molly Keogh, Ms. Rice plans to redevelop support services for students, families, and the surrounding community.
Ms. Rice’s experience as a mother of a “wonderful eleven year old child” guides many of the decisions that she makes for her students. It is her goal to ensure that her son receives an excellent education and a well rounded childhood full of everything that he will need to become a leader in society. This is the same guiding force that she applies to the students and the community in which she considers herself “blessed to serve as principal”.
Waverly – which is on the brink of being fully renovated – is fortunate to have Ms. Rice as their principal leader as she is familiar with and very much looking forward to working collaboratively with community partners in effort to strengthen the school community.
