Dr. Angelia Roop, Asst. Principal
With twenty-nine years’ experience in education, I have been an administrator for nineteen years and am excited about being back with the team at Lewisburg Elementary School as Assistant Principal for the second year.
I earned a Doctoral degree from the University of Mississippi in Educational Leadership. I also have a Specialist’s degree and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Mississippi.
Having taught a wide variety of math courses for grades 7-12 and served as an administrator of all grades in the k-12 setting, my last administrator role was as Assistant Superintendent of the Senatobia Municipal School District. In that role, I worked with federal programs, state testing, k-12 curriculum and instruction, and many other facets of education. I have also taught and been a math coach in the DeSoto County Schools.
I am married to Tim Roop, and we have one daughter, Jasmine, who is married to Matthew Sorrell. Matthew and Jasmine currently live in Maryland where Jasmine recently finished her doctoral internship at Johns Hopkins Kennedy Krieger Institute in Psychology, and Matthew is a Computer Engineer. Tim and I have a yorkie, LeLe, and an adopted stray cat, Grayson, that I love! We attend Longview Point in Hernando where I lead a weekly ladies' bible study and am actively involved in church.
It has been an honor to spend my life working in education systems, and I get no greater joy than to see children grow, learn, and be successful. I look forward to serving another year alongside the wonderful Patriot community and contributing to the positive educational experiences of all students.
