Ms. Spaid, Principal

Dear Trailblazer Parents and Guardians,Heather Spaid

It is with great enthusiasm and pride that I write this letter to you as the newly appointed principal of Jouett Elementary School. I am humbled and honored to be offered the opportunity to continue serving the legendary Jouett Elementary community.

I acquired the majority of my K-12 education in Fluvanna County. I graduated from FCHS in 1996 and attended Radford University where I earned two bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education and English.

I was a classroom teacher for twelve years and I truly cherished my time as a second, third, and fourth grade teacher. In 2012, I earned a master’s degree from the University of Virginia in Administration and Supervision.

I am extremely passionate and excited about continuing the wonderful work that is already in progress at Jouett Elementary School. My vision as an instructional leader is to continue exposing our students to rigorous curriculum while nurturing each student’s character development. My role as principal is to serve the Jouett community while ensuring that our students have a safe, challenging, and caring place to learn and grow.

I am committed to serving Jouett’s students, parents, and staff through open communication and a commitment to teamwork, collaboration, and excellence.

I look forward to working with you all and serving as the leader of this legendary school. Thank you and I hope you all have a safe and sensational summer!

Heather L. Spaid, M. Ed.


Mrs. Bryant, Assistant Principal

Dear Jouett Families and Friends,JulieBryant

My name is Julie Bryant and I am so excited to be the new Assistant Principal at Jouett Elementary School.  I have been a part of the Jouett faculty for many years and am blessed and honored to continue to serve the students, families, staff, and community.  I know we are going to continue to lead the way in Louisa County. 


I am grateful to have had many wonderful educational experiences that have contributed to my journey and passion for serving the Jouett community.  I acquired my K-12 education in Henrico County in Richmond, Virginia. After graduation I went to Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia where I grew to have a real appreciation for rural life and the joy of living and working in a close-knit community.  While at Shepherd, I played Collegiate Volleyball and received my Elementary Education degree. I am a Jouett Trailblazer through and through, as all of my educational experience has been at Jouett. I have served as a Special Educator, Language Arts Teacher, and most recently as a Reading Resource Teacher.  In 2018, I received my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the American College of Education. In addition to being passionate about education, I am also a wife and mother. My husband Danny and I have been blessed with three wonderful children, Kamden, Kenzie, and Kollins. I am abundantly grateful for the opportunity to serve and for the experiences I have as a member of the Jouett Family.


I am excited as we embark on the 2019-2020 school year.  Jouett’s leadership and staff are proud to provide innovative instruction that helps to enrich and challenge all of our students.  While academics are important for us, we also value and work to help cultivate a culture and community of support, collaboration, and respect.  We truly value relationships and I am excited for us to continue to grow our Jouett Family. We will continue to, “Be Legendary,” this school year and I look forward to working with our students, staff, parents, and community.



Julie E. Bryant, M. Ed
