George Whitten Elementary

Welcome to George A Whitten Elementary!

Whitten Elementary is one of the best places to learn, grow, and achieve!  Our focus at Whitten is to maintain a learning environment characterized by a commitment to high academic standards and positive behaviors.  We believe that an atmosphere of mutual respect, concern, and achievement will result in our students’ preparedness for further education and life as they become responsible, productive members of an ever-changing society.

We are fortunate to have an exceptionally talented and dedicated staff who works collaboratively with our parents and the community to ensure that each student receives an exemplary educational experience.  GWE students adhere to the “Warrior Way Commitment”, which states: “TODAY we will be respectful. We will be responsible.  We will be respectful.  We will be our best.”

My husband and I are lifelong residents of Sumner County.  Our lives, like yours, are ever-changing. We are the proud parents of three children, a son-in-law, and a daughter-in-law.  Our world, however, now revolves around our granddaughter and two grandsons, all under the age of three! We enjoy family time and Titans football, especially the wins!

Please know that my door is always open to faculty, staff, parents, students, and the community.  You may also reach me through email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone at 615-824-3258.
