Committed to Excellence
Angie Cramer, Principal
Angie Cramer is ecstatic to join the Capstone family as the new Principal of Cornerstone Prep - Lester Campus. She is humbled and ever grateful for this opportunity to join this school community.
Angie was born and raised in a small town outside of St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Memphis just over ten years ago. She and her husband, Steve, are the proud parents of two boys, Tommy and Ben. She is a life-long educator having taught special education in first grade through high school, both first and third grades in general education classes, and has served as the director of children’s ministries for a small church before her most recent position as principal.
Angie holds bachelor degrees in Elementary Education (K-5) and Special Education (K-12) from the University of Missouri and a master's degree in Educational Leadership from Christian Brothers University. Four years ago she joined an organization called New Leaders and served as the Resident Principal at Shannon Elementary. She was then named the Principal of Kingsbury Elementary and served there for three years, just before coming to Cornerstone Prep. At Kingsbury she and her team worked hard, seeing awesome results over her three year stay, closing subgroup gaps by as much as 14% with the ELL population and made double digit gains in all academic areas. While under Angie's leadership, they were also named a TN Reward School for the past two academic years for being in the top 5% in the state for student growth.
"I have learned that the same type of work has been happening here at Cornerstone Prep and the momentum is building," Angie says. "Cornerstone Prep certainly has a lot to be proud of, and I believe there is a great foundation set here on which we can continue to build together. I believe that the future is bright for Cornerstone Prep and the Binghampton community. I am looking forward serving alongside each of you, on this journey!"
