Danielle Tillis, Assistant Principal

  • As I enter my 6th year at Elisha M. Pease, I continue to be a  firm believer in our campus vision and mission. There is nothing we can not accomplish, and I know the best is yet to come. I look forward to continuing the positive culture and relationships with our community, staff, and students. Our students will thrive as 21st-century learners as they explore real-world problems and engage in meaningful learning.  We have high expectations for responsibility, respect, and integrity to create a positive atmosphere that promotes student growth academically and socially. We are the beacons of hope and models of excellence for our community as we ensure equity for all students.

    “Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” Rita Pierson
