• Principal: Mrs. Tabetha Rawlings
    I am proud to say this is my 10th year as principal of MCE.  We have such an amazing school community with fabulous teachers, staff, students and families.
    I have 12 years of teaching experience and this is my 12th year as an administrator.

    I grew up in Ashland Missouri, where I began teaching first grade in 1998. I hold a bachelors in elementary education. I have my masters and specialist degrees in administration.  In 2020 I proudly completed my educational doctoral program through William Woods University.
     
    I have lived in Columbia Missouri most of my life.  This is my 17th year married to my husband Tyler, and we have a sophomore daughter that attends rock Bridge High School. I’m very proud to be a member of the CPS family.  Some of my hobbies include reading, walking, riding my bike, gardening, and hanging out with families and friends.  The best part of my job is getting to watch our kids grow up!
