Tyson Steelman is Named the Next ACE Principal

A message from Superintendent Liggins:

Every school deserves a great leader and I believe your School-Based Decision Making Council made an excellent choice in selecting Tyson Steelman as the next principal of Athens-Chilesburg Elementary School. Please join me in congratulating him on this new role!

Tyson has 13 years of experience in education, having started his teaching career in Bowling Green, KY at Bowling Green High School and South Warren Middle School. After nearly six years in the classroom, he joined the Fayette County Public Schools team as science department chair and PBIS coach at Beaumont Middle School. After a year as Assistant Principal at Mount Sterling Elementary School, Tyson returned to FCPS as the PGES Coach at Athens-Chilesburg Elementary School, a role he has held ever since. Tyson holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from Western Kentucky University, and both a master’s degree in teacher leadership and Rank 1 in administration from the University of the Cumberlands.

Tyson is a leader with a servant’s heart who wants every student to realize his or her fullest potential. He is committed to open communication and a shared collaborative approach to working with staff, families, and community members. I know you will accomplish great things together!
