H rachalPineville is my home. I live here because there is nowhere better!
Being the Assistant Principal at Lessie Moore Elementary has provided me the opportunity to give back to my community. As I end my third year as AP, Principal Laurie Johnson and I, along with our family of teachers and support staff, want to make our students the very best they can be because they are our neighbors and our community’s future. It is our goal to provide quality education in our classrooms and to instill pride and confidence in our students. My hope to build positive views of education in these youngest students, focusing on an excitement for learning, high expectations of themselves, and excellence in all they do.
