As we celebrate the retirement of Kara Crighton-Smith, Willard South Elementary principal, we appreciate her dedication to Willard Schools for 25 years! To continue the excellence at Willard South, we welcome Mrs. Tabitha Foraker to our Willard Family!
Learn more about Mrs. Foraker below:
My name is Tabitha Foraker and I have been an elementary educator for over 14 years. I received my Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, and teaching credentials at California State University, San Bernardino. Over the course of those 14 years, I have had the distinct honor of serving students and my community as a general education teacher, special education teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, and principal. My husband, two daughters and I are new to the state of Missouri, but we look forward with hope and excitement to this next chapter of our life. I believe in the strength of working as a team with a relentless focus on student learning and achievement. I am delighted and excited to be joining the Willard Public Schools team! I look forward to collaborating with students, staff, families, and the community of Willard South Elementary!
At the Willard R-II School District, student safety is paramount. Reports of bullying are, and have always been, taken seriously and investigated. If you have knowledge of a bullying situation you are encouraged to promptly report such incident to a school employee, including specifically the Assistant Superintendent or Building Principal.
