Mr. Thomas Staples
Hello, my name is Thomas Staples and I am honored to take on the role of Assistant Principal at Dalton Elementary School. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I have lived in CDA for 35 years and absolutely love the people and activities in this area. I completed both my undergraduate and graduate studies through U of I (Go Vandals!). I taught middle school science for a number of years at Lakes Middle School, then took on the role of Assistant Principal at Canfield Middle School for several years. After running a business for the last year, I missed working with students and found my skill set to better fit the school setting. My wife, Janie, and I have 3 daughters in our district. When school is not in session, you can find us at the beach, backpacking, skiing, or sailing our little red boat. I look forward to meeting you! Please feel free to reach out or drop by at any time.
