The new principal of Venable Elementary will be Ms. Chantel Beverly. Ms. Beverly has been the assistant principal of Greenbrier Elementary since 2019. Previously, she taught at A.P. Hill Elementary in Petersburg and Broad Rock Elementary in Richmond, where, in 2017, she was named teacher of the year. She has earned a bachelor’s and master’s in teaching from VCU and a master’s degree in administration and supervision from Averett University.
At Greenbrier, Ms. Beverly is known for her unwavering dedication to students and community. She is a relationship builder and an instructional leader who creates learning environments where all students can achieve success. In Greenbrier Principal Dina Fricke’s words, “Ms. Beverly is going to be amazing and the Venable community is so very lucky to have her.”
Ms. Beverly’s first day at Venable will be July 1. We invite staff and families to come meet Ms. Beverly and Dr. Gurley at Venable on Wednesday, June 22 from 3-6pm for Popsicles on the Playground.
