  • Meet Mrs. Anna Barton
    South Effingham Elementary would like to welcome Anna Barton as its new principal.  Although Mrs. Barton is assuming a new position at SEES, she is no stranger to the school. Mrs. Barton taught 3rd grade at SEES for five years, from 2007-2012, during which time she pursued her leadership degree. In the fall of 2012, she became the Instructional Supervisor at Springfield Elementary School, a position that she held for two years.  As fate would have it, we are lucky to have her return home to SEES as our fearless leader and principal.
