Mr. Vanderpool

Welcome to your School!

The Gravette communities are a great place to call home. People living in this area are very helpful and supportive. I'm sure you will appreciate the school and neighbors as much as I have.

Gravette reminds me of my hometown of Huntsville, Arkansas. I was raised on a small farm near the Kings River and graduated from Huntsville High. Russellville was home while I earned a B.S.E. in elementary education at Arkansas Tech University. After graduating from college, my wife and I returned to the Home of the Eagles to begin our family. Teresa and I have two boys. Landon is at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway studying Criminology. Dalton is also at UCA in Conway. He is on the drum line for the Bears Marching Band and will study Music Education.

While teaching 3rd grade in Huntsville, I was able to earn a M.S.E. in educational administration at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. I became an assistant principal as a new intermediate school was opened there. I have been an educator for 23 extraordinary years and look forward to spending many more right here in Gravette.

This year will be my 13th year to serve as principal at Glenn Duffy, where we Believe and Achieve! I'm looking forward to another great school year!

Go Lions!!!
