• I am ecstatic to be at East Elementary! It is my privilege to have the opportunity to serve as the Assistant Principal. I began my career in education as a paraprofessional and then served as an elementary school teacher. I entered Waynesville R-VI School District 5 years ago as a 5th grade teacher. I hold a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a Master’s of Education of Educational Leadership and Instructional Leadership. I am a firm believer that education is one of the most valuable things you can receive. I will serve the school and students by forging cooperative partnerships, and collaborating with all stakeholders in which we are focused on building constructive and positive academic experiences. 

    At East Elementary we aim to empower students to be life-long learners, accelerate learning potential, and strive to succeed together as 21 century learners. We encourage an inclusive, safe, and positive environment that supports the development of confident leaders. 

    It is my pleasure to serve our learning community and as East Elementary’s Assistant Principal. Please feel free to contact me anytime at kpirtle@waynesville.k12.mo.us or 573-842-2150 for questions and support in your student’s education. I look forward to an amazing school year!
