Colette Moorehead is excited to become part of Jamestown Elementary, joining the school community as the assistant principal in August of 2011. She shares, "Although I was born in New York, I consider home to be Morocco, a country I lived in for ten years. My mother, of French origin, and my father, a native of the U.S. Virgin Islands, taught me to appreciate the languages, traditions and cultures from around the world. I began my advanced studies at Harvard University, where I also found a love for teaching. My professional development continued with my first master’s in Special Education from George Washington University and most recently, another master’s and administrative certification from George Mason University. After teaching for fourteen years at various elementary and middle schools in Arlington, as well as two years at an international school in Peru, I am ready to embark on a new journey as a school leader. I look forward to working closely with the parents, students, staff and community at Jamestown.
