Campbellsburg Elementary School

Amy Treece, the new principal at Campbellsburg Elementary School, began her teaching career in 1999 as an elementary teacher with Henry County Public Schools.  Throughout her career she has served as an elementary and middle school teacher, instructional specialist with the Kentucky Department of Education, and instructional coach.

She received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Kentucky State University, a Masters of Education from the University of Louisville, Masters of Education with Reading Specialist Endorsement from Georgetown College, and Ed.S/Masters of Educational Leadership from University of Kentucky. 

“I am very excited to begin this journey as principal of Campbellsburg Elementary. CES is a special place where teachers and families work together to offer the best possible education for our children,” Treece said. “As the world changes, our students will face many challenges; they will need to be critical thinkers and problem solvers.”

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.  Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Eastern feels like home and I am very excited to begin my new chapter as principal,” Denny said. “I will work to build in the many great things that have been started by Mrs. Tingle and the past leadership and look forward to continuing to build even more community involvement and supporting the educational growth of our wonderful students.”
