Assistant Principal, Jennifer Gurley

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the students, faculty, staff, parents, and the community as Assistant Principal of Shadow Oaks Elementary School.  It is a joy to be a part of SOES!

I attended the University of Memphis and earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education.  I also have a Masters Degree in Education from Cumberland University, a Masters Degree in Administration from Grand Canyon University, and an Education Specialist Degree in Administration from Walden University. I am currently working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Concordia University.

This is my seventeeth year working in education and my eighth year working as an administrator. Since I was a child, I have always known that I wanted to work with children.  I have a passion for reading and feel that knowledge is power that will open doors to many exciting places.

I am married with a daughter and son.  We have two grandsons.  My family loves to travel and attend concerts.  Some of our favorite bands are Building 429, Newsboys, Family Force Five, and many others.  I live in DeSoto County and feel that it is important to be a part of and work in the community where I live.

I am looking forward to the 2018-19 school year!  Please let me know if there is any way that I can assist you.
