Ascension Public Schools announces the appointment of Kimberly Ammons as the new Principal of Prairieville Primary.
“It is an honor to introduce exceptional employees who are stepping into new leadership roles. We are so grateful that they have the courage and desire to serve the students of Ascension Parish,” said Superintendent David Alexander.
Ammons began her career in public education by teaching fourth- and fifth-grade students at Lowery Elementary before becoming a mentor teacher at the school. Ammons moved to Prairieville Primary (PVP) six years ago to work as an instructional coach. She became the assistant principal of PVP three years ago.
“I am so humbled and honored to be chosen for this position. I do not take my work likely. I love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else,” said Ammons. “Thank you for believing in me and allowing me to take over this amazing honor. I promise to do my best for the students and families of Prairieville Primary.”
Ammons earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Orleans and a master’s degree from Southeastern Louisiana University.
She and her husband, Mark, have a daughter named McKenna.
