Dr. Rhonda Ambrose, Principal

My professional preparation includes a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies, with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education (NK-4) from Norfolk State University, a Master of Science in Education with an endorsement in Leadership, Principalship and Supervision from Old Dominion University, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University,

My experiences include Elementary School Assistant Principal, Site Coordinator for an Alternative Site, Early Literacy Specialist on the central office level, Instructional Specialist, Coordinator of the Before and After School Program (Richard Bowling Elementary), Supervisor of the COZI Summer Enrichment Program (Bowling Park Elementary), and Grade-Level Chair . These administrative positions have enabled me to acquire considerable exposure in administrative processes, staff development, and observing and supporting teachers and parents. In addition, I have participated in the development of Pre-Kindergarten curriculum and assessments, collaborated with administrators, and trained parents on how to support literacy at home. Goal setting, planning, organizing, and working with diverse groups are all personal strengths that have afforded me opportunities to utilize and demonstrate my interpersonal and leadership skills with effectiveness and efficiency as the principal of Campostella Elementary.

“I believe commitment is the one quality above all others that enables a potential leader to become a successful leader.” I possess charisma, character, competence, conviction and vision. My ability to effectively communicate with students, parents, teachers, administrators and colleagues, enhances my capabilities as an instructional leader. Additionally, these various roles have provided me with the necessary foundation to envision, embrace and continue the journey of guiding our Campostella Cardinals to “world class” status.
