Dear John Pittard families,

I am excited and proud to serve as the principal of John Pittard Elementary school. I’m a native of Murfreesboro, educated in the Murfreesboro City School and Rutherford County School systems. I attended Hobgood Elementary, Central Middle School, and Oakland High School. Upon completion of high school, I attended Middle Tennessee State University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in early childhood education. I earned a master and specialist in education degrees from MTSU. My final degree is a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Tennessee State University. Prior to finding a home at John Pittard, I was a kindergarten teacher at Black Fox Elementary for 22 years. Later, becoming an assistant principal at the Discovery School. These experiences allow me to have a greater understanding of how to support all of our students in the John Pittard community. 

On a personal note, I am married to Troy Robinson, and we have three sons and a daughter. Their ages range from 27 to 17. We have a sweet dog named Paisley Amber. I attend Olive Branch Church with my family. I am a soccer mom, cheering on my son and the Mars Hills Lions. I am a dance and musical theatre mom. I am actively involved with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Murfreesboro Education Association, and other community organizations. I am blessed to hold many honors and awards as an educator and community member. I love to attend decorator show houses, concerts, football games especially the Tennessee Titans, and any activity supporting family and friends.

As I enter this my 31st year in education, it will be a year like no other!  I along with the staff at John Pittard, have intentionally worked to create a family atmosphere which is loving, fun and an exciting place for all to learn. I love being a John Pittard Lion!  I am committed to creating special memories for every student we have the privilege of educating.

Hello, John Pittard Families! 

It is an honor to serve John Pittard as Assistant Principal!  I have been a Murfreesboro resident for over 20 years and have loved spending my educational career with Murfreesboro City School District.  I have received degrees from both Middle Tennessee State University and Trevecca Nazarene University in curriculum, instruction, and educational leadership.  Most recently, I received my doctorate in education and I look forward to serving the students and families of Murfreesboro City better as a result.  I love working with children, teachers, and families to support student learning and growth.   

Outside of the school setting, I love spending time with my husband, two daughters, and our two golden retrievers.  We enjoy biking, camping, and generally spending time outdoors together.  I also enjoy exercising, reading, and learning new skills whenever I can. 

I love being part of the Pittard Family and look forward to continuing to serve the students, teachers, and families of this wonderful community!
