Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Lynn Fanning Elementary School where our students are “learning today, leading tomorrow.”  I am Tammie Burger and I am blessed to serve this school and community as your principal. I am very excited to be part of the Lynn Fanning family and look forward to working with you and your child.

    I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Athens State University in 1996 and began teaching 5thgrade Reading at Hazel Green Middle School.  While at HGMS I taught Math, Reading and English and sponsored the Drama Club.  I transferred to Meridianville Middle School in 2001 where I taught 6th grade Math and Reading.  While at MVMS I co-sponsored the Basketball Cheerleaders, sponsored First Priority, and was on many committees where I served as a member, chair, or lead contact.

    I graduated from Tennessee State University in 2004 with my Master’s in Administration and Supervision.  During the 2010-2011 school year, I served our system as the Math/Technology Coach on a grant awarded to the county through the Department of Defense Education Activity.  This opportunity allowed me to work with 16 math teachers and their students in three schools across Madison County. My next move in education was as Assistant Principal at Riverton Intermediate School from 2011-2013.  I have been part of the LFES family since 2013 where I love what I do and I am doing what I love.

    LFES serves students in 4K Readiness through 3rd grade.  Our faculty strives for high levels of learning for all students.  We offer many opportunities for students to lead using their strengths in and outside the classroom.
