Meet the Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Barry Dunn
We are looking forward to a tremendous 2019-2020 School year! My family and I are truly honored to be part of the Tatum Ridge Family and look forward to another great year. My wife, Heather, is a First Grade Teacher at Tuttle Elementary School and we have three children: Austin (12), Emma (10), and Maggie (8). They have all attended Tatum Ridge. Our faculty and support staff are working very hard to provide our students with a high-quality educational experience. With continuous family support and outstanding volunteers, our students are making tremendous strides in their educational journey. Tatum Ridge Elementary is truly appreciative for the high level of support we receive from you all. We also welcome all DADS to join our Tatum Dads Group. We meet at Gecko's once a month to plan school-wide events and socialize with other Tatum dads.
Tatum Ridge Elementary School has a strong tradition of supportive, hard-working families. Please consider ways in which you can provide direct support for our school: join and participate with the PTO, volunteer in the classroom, help with our PBS celebrations, volunteer at Jog-a-thon, or attend School Advisory Council meetings. We welcome your willingness to join us in the many activities and events we have going on throughout the school year.
As always, my door is open to you. Please stop by anytime.
Thank you for all you do!
