Posted on 07/19/2019

Cheatham Park Elementary School will be under new leadership as the 2019-2020 school year begins with the placement of Theresa Chandler as Principal and Megan Keyes as the new Assistant Principal.


A graduate of Tennessee State University, Chandler, who has been an educator since 1993, has been with Robertson County Schools since 2013 and has taught in both Coopertown Middle and Springfield High schools.  Prior to coming to RCS, she taught in Cheatham County schools. During her career she has furthered her education with both a Master’s Degree, and an Endorsement in Supervision and Administration from TSU.


Director of Schools, Chris Causey said, “We are excited to announce Mrs. Theresa Chandler as the new principal of Cheatham Park.  Mrs. Chandler has been the Academic Coordinator at SHS, an elementary teacher, special education teacher, extended behavior teacher, and a high school assistant principal.  Her vast experience will serve her well as she leads to continue the amazing work going on at 'The Park’.”


For her part, Chandler is enthusiastic about her new responsibilities.


"I am very excited and honored to be a part of Cheatham Park Elementary.  I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful teachers, students, parents, and community members.  It is my goal to provide a safe and caring place where children come first.   By putting children first, we will achieve the school’s vision to be learners today and the leaders of tomorrow." 



Incoming Assistant Principal Megan Keyes has taught with RCS since 2013. Keyes graduated from Austin Peay State University in 2013 and earned a Master’s Degree from Union University in 2018. She was already a current teacher at CPES, making her familiar with students and staff.


Dr. Causey announced, “We are proud of the work she has already done at CPES, and look forward to working with her in this capacity as she continues to help lead that school into a bright future.”


Both administrators are excited at the possibilities of the coming school year and are already immersed in their preparation for the opening of school just weeks away.
