GISD Announces New Principal of Chalmers Elementary

GISD is proud to announce Mr. Brandon Whiten as the new Principal at Chalmers Elementary. 


Whiten has been in administration as Assistant Principal and Principal for 9 years, including the last year as the Assistant Principal at Lee Intermediate.


"I loved my time at Lee Intermediate," Whiten said. "The staff and kids there are very special to me and I will miss them tremendously."


Whiten is looking forward to moving into the role as Principal at Chalmers, as a majority of his experience has been with those grade levels. 
"I could not be more excited and proud to join the family at Chalmers Elementary," Whiten said.  "I know Mrs. Polk and Mr. Fry have been tremendous administrators and I hope to continue their great work."
Whiten is looking forward to the chance to get to know the students and the parents at Chalmers.   "We will work together every day to make our kids in Gainesville successful." 
Whiten has two children; a freshman at Pepperdine University and a freshman in high school.
Whiten follows Brittenie Polk who was Principal for three years prior to accepting the position as GISD Director of Special Education.
