Fredrick Geissler, Principal

I am excited to be entering my sixth year as Principal of Wells Elementary School and am looking forward to the upcoming school year.

Prior to coming to Wells, I served in educational roles in special education, technology integration, and associate principal.  I received my undergraduate degree from James Madison University and my graduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University.

My wife and I have three boys and love to spend time at their sporting events or being in the outdoors (running, hiking, fishing).

I love watching our Wildcats learn and grow, and am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of their lives.

Summer Lannan, Assistant Principal

I am Summer Lannan and I am thrilled to continue to serve as your Assistant Principal at C.C Wells Elementary.  

I began my education endeavors by attending Virginia Commonwealth University and receiving my Masters of Teaching with an undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I had the privilege of starting my teaching career at C.E Curtis Elementary as a third grade teacher.  After teaching at Curtis, I became a Math Specialist at Chalkley Elementary and then Bellwood Elementary.  While teaching and leading at Bellwood Elementary, I received my Post Master’s in Administration and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University.  

Once completing my Administration degree, I worked at Marguerite Christian Elementary as an Assistant Principal for four years before moving to Wells Elementary.  I am passionate about helping all students be successful both academically and socially at Wells.  

Personally, I enjoy reading when I have time and spending time with my family. I live with my husband, daughter and rescue dog.  My daughter is a junior at Cosby High School this year.  We all enjoy watching movies together, when we have time, and going out to dinners together. 

I believe open and honest communication is the key to a successful school year.
