• Our Principal

    Dr. Vanessa G. Byrd



    My name is Dr. Vanessa G. Byrd and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Minor Elementary School. I am honored to have been selected to join the Minor family, which is known for its dedication to excellence, but more importantly, to children.  I have over twenty years of experience as an educator and administrator.  I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community. Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. As the old African Proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at Minor Elementary School. And of course I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day. My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they may learn as much as they can. Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all children have the best possible experiences while at Minor Elem School. Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to your wonderful community. I look forward to getting to know you and your children.
