Mrs. Nikki Skeen, Principal
Roosevelt Elementary Bears
Welcome to Roosevelt!
I am excited about getting to know you and your child, and I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year. I have lived in the tri-cities my entire life. I received my bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Psychology from Carson Newman College, and completed my master’s degree in Education at Milligan College. From there, I began my career working at Johnson, where I taught Kindergarten, fourth grade and fifth grade. I have also worked as a literacy coach for the district and served as an associate principal at Jackson Elementary and Roosevelt. While working at Jackson, I earned an educational specialist degree in Leadership and Administration from Lincoln Memorial University. On a personal note, my husband and I have been married for 10 years and have one daughter.
It is an honor to be the principal at Roosevelt and I want to extend to you my sincere interest in your child’s education. I strongly believe that open communication, student attendance and a positive relationship between home and school are the most important components to your child’s success.
The faculty and staff of Roosevelt look forward to working with you to ensure your child becomes a life-long learner and is successful in reaching both academic and personal goals.
