A Little About Myself...

Hi Waterman Families! My name is Jill Hart and I am excited to be the Principal at Waterman Elementary School. I am very excited to be working with the children and their families that attend Waterman. This is a great place to learn! This is my dog Rocky and he is excited for the 2016-2017 school year, too!

It was a wonderful year with learning so much about the children and the families at Waterman.  I looked forward to greeting children as they come off the bus and enter our building to start their day!  Meeting all those smiling faces starts the day off on such a happy and positive note.  I am looking forward to being a part of that morning routine again in 2016-2017.

For families that are new to Waterman...WELCOME!  Here is a little information about myself. I worked in Early Childhood Education for seven years in Charlottesville, Virginia. We were moving to the valley and I applied for postions in Harrisonburg City. The High School offered me a position as a Special Education Assistant and I was hooked. I completed my Certification in Special Education and a Master's in Education from Mary Baldwin College. I was fortunate to be at the high school for thirteen years. I was an assistant for four years, I taught students with emotional disabilities for seven years, and I was the Alternative Education Coordinator for three years. I completed my Administration Certification in August of 2011 and was ready to pursue administrative positions. I wanted to stay in Harrisonburg City Schools because we are the finest division and care so much about children. When this position became available I was very excited. I was ready to expand my educational experiences and to return to where my educational career had started, educating young children. It is hard to believe I am starting my fifth year  at Waterman Elementary School. The teachers, staff, and families  are the best! I am thrilled to be here and I very excited about the new school year. Please let me know if there is anything I can do help! I look forward to a GREAT year!
