Hello Wolves! I am thrilled to be a member of the Winterpock family and serve the children of this fine community as principal! I am humbled to work with such a caring and dedicated staff that continually strives to provide the best learning opportunities for all students.

My career in education began in Hanover County as a first grade teacher in 2000 after earning my B.A. in Sociology, Early Childhood Education, and Dance from JMU. I served as a first and second grade teacher for four years at Henry Clay Elementary prior to transitioning to Chesterfield County. I was as a second grade teacher at Salem Church Elementary for     two years and a fifth grade teacher at Robious Elementary for one year. During my tenure as a classroom teacher, I earned my M.Ed. in Reading Education from UVA. This led me to serve the children of Colonial Heights in five schools as the Division K-12 Instructional Specialist-Reading Coach for six years. With the dream of returning to one elementary school, I completed my Ed.S. in Administration & Supervision from UVA. From 2013-2017, I served as assistant principal at Laurel Meadow Elementary in Hanover County. I am ecstatic about my second year as the principal of the Winterpock Wolfpack!

I am a native of Hampton, VA and currently reside in Midlothian, VA with my husband, Jeff, soon to be 9-year-old daughter, Mollee, and 7-year-old son, Will. You will find me on the soccer field as a volunteer coach for FC Richmond or putting up over 20,000 Christmas lights on our house! We love going to the beach, playing outside, reading books together, and cheering for the Red Sox!

As a school community, we look forward to partnering with our parents to ensure that each student has an amazing year of learning! Every parent is encouraged to become a member of the Winterpock Team by joining the PTA, attending school events, and/or being a volunteer. Together, as a “pack” we can make a positive impact!

Thank you so much for your support! Please feel free to email me at karen_dubiel@ccpsnet.net or call me at (804) 763-5051 if I can assist you with anything.

Jennifer Malcolm
Assistant Principal

Hi Wolfpack!  I am so thankful that I am able to continue to be a part of the administrative team as the new assistant principal here at Winterpock.  For the past two years I have served as the Dean of Students. Prior to being in that position, I taught at Winterpock in both 5th grade CBG and 4th grade. I also taught 4th and 5th grade in Richmond City and Chesterfield County for 10 years before staying home with my girls for seven years. I am originally from Long Island, NY and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Buffalo State College. After teaching for several years, I earned my Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from VCU.

I've been married to my husband, Wayne, for almost 15 years.  My identical twin daughters, Alyssa and Amanda, are in 8th grade.  Most of our free time is spent volunteering at the local children’s theater group our girls are involved in. I do carve out time every day to read though. There is nothing better than getting caught up in a good book! I also love Disney and it’s my family’s number one vacation spot.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me at jennifer_malcolm@ccpsnet.net or 763-5051 if there is anything I can help with. I am really looking forward to continue working with the students, staff and families of Winterpock again. It’s going to be a great year!

Dean of Students

Hi Wolves! I am thrilled to become a member of the pack at Winterpock! Before becoming your new dean of students, I spent sixteen years teaching in Chesterfield elementary schools. For two years, I served as the Title I reading teacher at Chalkley Elementary, where I also taught for ten years. Most recently, I taught 3rd and 5th grades at Robious Elementary. 

I am a proud graduate of Chesterfield County Public Schools. I earned my Bachelor of Science in English at Radford University and my Master’s of Curriculum and Instruction from Averett University. Currently, I am enrolled at the University of Virginia completing my Master’s of Administration and Supervision.

Did I hear Wahoowa?! In my free time, I enjoy watching UVA basketball and football. When I am not catching a game, you will find me spending time with my family and friends, or loving on my dog Parker. I also love antiquing and refurbishing old furniture when I find time. I look forward to working with the Winterpock community and having an amazing year! Please feel free to contact me at kimberley_parnell@ccpsnet.net or 763-5051.
