My name is Angela Cossey. It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to serve as Principal of Cannon South Elementary. I am a lifelong resident of Cannon County and graduated from Cannon County High School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree, Master’s Degree, and Educational Specialist Degree in Instructional Leadership from Tennessee Technological University. During my 16 years in education, I have served as a teacher, instructional coordinator, and assistant principal before becoming principal. I am married to Josh Cossey and we have one daughter, Whitleigh.

No matter what my role has been, I have poured my heart out into changing lives. High expectations for students' academics, behavior, and perception of themselves have been an overarching goal. Seeking to provide opportunities to maximize every child's hidden potential and open the windows of opportunities is why the fire continues to burn to make a difference. We must love to teach and reach children in order to impact their lives in a positive way. Students have voices that need to be heard, parents have concerns and contributions that must be valued, teachers are professionals who should be supported and appreciated, and leaders must serve the needs of all in order for education to happen! I believe in the power of TEAM! We cannot do it alone. I welcome the parents, the community, and the students to be a part of our TEAM!
