Meet South End's New Administrators!
Ms. Goods and Dr. Danley passing out first days treats to staff members.
From Dr. Kelly Nelson-Danley, Principal:
I am so thrilled to be at South End this year I am coming to South End from Central Elementary where I served as the Assistant Principal there for 3 years. Prior to that, I worked as an IC at Draper Elementary and I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, and 5 at New Vision Elementary. I have a deep appreciation and understanding of the hard work that elementary school educators and staff put into their students in these critical first years of school. I know how valuable each staff member and parent can be in the lives of our students and I am so excited to be a part of your school family.
On a personal note, my husband and I have 2 small foster children at home who keep me very busy. I am also an animal lover and I have five dogs, two cats, four fish, three ducks, and a bunny! I enjoy going to church, shopping, and reading!
Can't wait to work with each of you to make decisions successful school year!
From Ms. Tameka Goods, Assistant Principal:
I’m so excited to join the South End Elementary family as your assistant principal for the 2021-2022 school year! I am honored to be in this position and I am looking forward to meeting each of you.
A little bit about me; I was born and raised in Reidsville, North Carolina. I am married with three boys (one in the Air Force, one who attends Virginia Tech & one that's a South End Bear) . I also have a tiny teacup named Tee Tee. I love and enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I love to help and make others smile! One of the ways I make others smile is through my non-profit called S&K Preemie Love Foundation, which was started in memory of my twin daughters that passed away in 2013. Our theme is “Keeping Dreams and Aspirations Alive”.
This is my 18th year in education which includes 15 years here in Rockingham County. I’m excited to embark on a new journey as a South End Bear! I promise to give my all to the students, parents and the wonderful staff of South End.
Can’t wait to meet each of you!
