Dilworth Welcomes Newest Dragons: Principal Chatterton and Several New Teachers
This year, we welcome Jeremy Chatterton as our new Dilworth Elementary principal. This is Mr. Chatterton’s first appointment as an elementary principal; he has worked at West High and Highland High as an assistant principal. He also taught Math at Judge Memorial High School and was the girls’ basketball coach at both Judge and Highland High. Mr. Chatterton has rolled up his sleeves and gone out of his way to get to know the faculty and staff to make the first day of school a success! The students were excited to meet Mr. Chatterton at our annual “Meet the Teacher” event on Friday, August 19. He greeted the student body Monday with a morning announcement welcoming us all to the first day of school and encouraged us all to “Ignite our Dragon Fire!” We look forward to a great year with Mr. Chatterton at the helm.
We also welcome new teachers to the Dilworth Staff: Kelly Poulson joins us from Edison Elementary and will be teaching PM Kindergarten. Britt Rose moved from Newman Elementary and is teaching fifth grade. Elizabeth (Wig) Arnold came to Dilworth from North Star Elementary to teach Full-day Kindergarten. Karen Sorensen will be teaching Resource at both Dilworth and Hawthorne Elementary; and our new Special Needs Life Skills teacher is Kalinda Dobson. We are excited to have these fabulous teachers join our Dilworth team.
