Mrs. Caldwell

Mrs. Caldwell can hardly believe she has been teaching thirty years.   What's really amazing is twenty-nine of them have been right here at Tomahawk Elementary School.  She grew up here in Lynchburg however she was born in Massachusetts.  She attended and graduated from Lynchburg College.  Her life is full when she is surrounded by her family, but calligraphy and zentangling keeps her  entertained when they are not around.  Her  true companion is her Yorkie, Bailey.

Mrs. Jensen

Mrs. Jensen is originally from Kentucky. She graduated from Liberty University. She taught in Amherst County for a couple of years, She was hired in Campbell County as a 5th grade teacher here at Tomahawk and has stayed here ever since.  She has two grown boys which she is very proud of.  She loves teaching 5th grade!

Ms. Arrington

Mrs. Arrington has been teaching 5th grade at TES for 16 years.  She grew up in Virginia but spent time living in Germany and Washington State for 5 years. She also graduated from Lynchburg College. She has a very large family with 6 grown children and 10 grandchildren. She loves going to visit them as much as possible. She plans to visit the beach and the mountains this summer in her new Jeep Wrangler. Her grandchildren are her pride and joy.

Mrs. Creasey

Mrs. Creasey loves to recall the childhood memories she has of growing up in Southwest Virginia.  Graduating from Lynchburg College, she came to Tomahawk Elementary as a kindergarten teacher.  Although her kindergarten students will always have a special place in her heart, she loves teaching 5th grade and works passionately to pass her enthusiasm for learning on to her students.  She looks forward to hosting family dinner night every Thursday.  Mrs. Creasey and her husband enjoy the enthusiasm their son, his wife, their daughter and her boyfriend always contribute to make it an entertaining evening.

Mrs. Grant

Mrs. Grant is a native of Bedford County, Virginia.  She grew up on a dairy farm near Smith Mountain Lake and now resides with her husband, two children, three dogs, rabbits, and numerous chickens on the north side of Bedford County near the Peaks of Otter.  She likes to spend her free time gardening and hiking.  Mrs. Grant taught with a wonderful staff and students at Bedford Elementary School for several years and is now very excited to be at Tomahawk Elementary School to work with another outstanding staff and students!

Mr. Barrett

Mr. Barrett has  been teaching for 7 years.  He grew up in Southern California and went to college at Vanguard University in Orange County California.  He moved to Lynchburg VA 2 years ago and loves working with the Tomahawk Family.  When he's not teaching you will find him playing softball, snowboarding, and if he can get a 3 day weekend he's off to the beach to go surfing.
