Greetings Fox Families and Friends!
I am Anita R. Roane and this will be my seventh year serving as the proud principal of EpicMNES. I have been in education for over 30 years. Throughout those years I have been blessed to have some wonderful opportunities and learning experiences to mold me along the way. Before joining Louisa County Public Schools, I taught kindergarten through fourth grade, was a Math Resource Teacher, and then was an Assistant Principal for two years. I was born in Philadelphia, PA but spent most of my life growing up in King William County, VA. Being in Louisa feels much like being back at home.
I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and my Master of Arts Degree in School Principalship from Central Michigan University. I am passionate about being an educator and leader and I enjoy attending professional conferences and reading to stay abreast of what is going on in the field of education.
I have one amazing daughter named Taylor who is also a VCU graduate. She is my greatest accomplishment yet! I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and friends, and I’m very active with my sorority, Delta Sigma Theta.
I love being a member of TeamLCPS. It is truly a family-oriented and supportive community like no other. This includes our awesome students, our supportive families, our loving and caring staff who execute our exciting and engaging curriculum and programs, our fantastic PTA, and our community partners.
Communication continues to be a key component in this partnership. Each Sunday during the school year, families will receive a phone call and email from me around 6 PM. This will be another way to stay informed about the school-wide activities coming ahead. I look forward to collaborating with our families as we engage in this exciting school year. I am only a phone call or email away and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org/540-967-1347. Also, please join our PTA, Facebook page and visit our school website often to stay up to date on school activities.
We are all excited to be continuing our Dens of Determination, our school-wide system modeled after the Ron Clark Academy’s House System used to create a positive climate and culture for our students and staff. Our Dens of Determination focuses on being givers, friendship, courage, and setting goals. It helps to give the students a sense of pride in a collaborative and safe environment. Last year Isibindi was the Den Champion. We look forward to finding out who will be the champion this school year!
At the Home of the Foxes, our students are respected, supported, challenged, and cared for and I look forward to working with them. It’s going to be an EPIC school year!
