The selection process for principals is completed, and I am pleased to announce the following:

Both of these ladies have been excellent employees of the Cannon Co. School System for several years, and they definitely have a desire to see the children of Cannon Co. succeed.

Hello! My name is Melinda Crook, and I am the 5th grade teacher and the Assistant Principal here at Auburn Elementary. I graduated from MTSU in 2000 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and in 2005 with a Master's Degree in Administration and Supervision. I began my teaching career here at Auburn School in 2001. I feel fortunate that I was able to come back and teach at the school where I attended grades K-8. I love our small school and community because it feels like one big family!
I have been happily married for 6 years and have a beautiful little girl. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching Reality T.V.
