Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Phyllis Whitworth

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Belmont Central!  I possess over twenty years educational experience spanning grades K-8 with a specific concentration in social studies, literacy development, and the teaching of writing. My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by nine years of successful leadership as an Elementary Principal (grades Pre K-5) and three years as a high school Assistant Principal at Forestview High School.  I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son/daughter’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. 

Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Belmont Central by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted direct instruction strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students. 

I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Belmont Central Elementary School.

During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Belmont Central the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school.  As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, email  or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!
