Mrs. Katelyn Dorsett

It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I write this introduction as the Principal of Margaret Elementary. It is my mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and part of the Margaret Elementary family. I will strive to ensure that every single student knows how much myself and our staff loves and cares about them. Through the development of these relationships, we will also strive to provide instructional opportunities that lead to academic excellence.


I attended Jacksonville State University where I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I received a Masters degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and an Educational Specialist degree from the University of North Alabama. I have four years experience as Assistant Principal at Odenville Intermediate and Odenville Elementary. I have six years of experience as a classroom teacher. My husband, Dane and I, reside in Odenville with our two sons, Hayes and Bryce. I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors.


Please feel free to email me at katelyn.dorsett@sccboe.org if I can assist you. I am here to help your child reach their maximum learning potential and develop a love for learning!
