Welcome to Bret R. Tarver School

Dr. Joy Weiss, principal of Tarver

  Dear Parents, Students and Staff,


I am honored and humbled to introduce myself as the principal of Bret R. Tarver Elementary School! It is a privilege to be a member of the Dolphin Community. I am excited to work alongside a dedicated and committed staff and community of learners.

I bring more than 18 years in the education field. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership, a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education. My background and experiences bring added value to my role and enable me to understand and meet the needs of both staff and students.

I believe that all students are capable of success, anchored in faith that working together, every child, will achieve excellence. As principal, my role is to empower our staff and students to shape tomorrow. Every day, we have opportunities to learn and grow from each other, working collaboratively and sharing our successes.

I know the 2017-2018 school year is going to be amazing! Working alongside our talented teachers and parents, our students will be champions!  I look forward to meeting each of you, developing partnerships with the families of Tarver and sharing our vision!

Dr. Joy Weiss
