Mrs. Ericka Armstrong

I am excited to be entering my third year as a Principal here at Gainesville JH/HS! This is my11th year in education. I have been lucky enough to teach all grades from 7th-12th in a variety of subject including English, Math, Science, Drama and Current Events. I have also served as a Volleyball and Softball coach in my past schools. I love every element of the educational process and am so excited to be here making a positive impact for our proud Bulldog students!

 I know the value of a strong education and seem to be something of a perpetual student myself. I hold an AAS degree in Agribusiness, a BSEd in Secondary Education, a Master’s in Administration, a Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction, and am currently pursuing my Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership through Evangel University. 


I am also a very blessed wife and mother of three. McCartney, Myles and Charlotte all attend Gainesville Elementary. When we aren’t at school, we enjoy kayaking, going to the movie theater, playing with our loving dogs and swimming at Grandma’s. We love living in Ozark County and seem to have found our home away from home.
