Dr. Andrea Datson

HelIo! My name is Dr. Andrea Datson! I am excited and honored to serve as the Principal of such a great school as Riverton Elementary School. I have over 18+ years of experience in education. Prior to joining the Riverton family, I served as a Special Education Teacher, Autism Specialist, Behavior Interventionist, and Assistant Principal. Most recently, I was named 2022 CLAS Assistant Principal of the year for the state of Alabama.

I absolutely love teaching and learning! I love pouring into others and sharing my knowledge and experience. I am married with two daughters who keep me pretty busy! I look forward to another school year filled with building new relationships and leaving a legacy that inspires others.
