Nurse Whitehead

RN at Silver Creek Elementary 
Azle ISD Nurse Coordinator 

About Me:
I am a registered nurse with 30 years of nursing experience in clinical and management positions with the last 15 being at Silver Creek Elementary and serving as the District Nursing Coordinator.

I’m from Canada and came to the United States as a traveling nurse. I met my husband who served a military career that took us all over the country and eventually to Azle, TX! Our daughter was raised as a Hornet and graduated from Baylor University and is now a kindergarten teacher in Waco. She and her husband are ready to have their first baby so I’m thrilled to be a Nana! My husband works at Lockheed Martin and we enjoy exploring the great state of Texas and go on many adventures. I also enjoy doing pottery and have a business with a friend.

My philosophy in school nursing is making sure each child has basic needs met and their problems — big or small receive the attention and nurturing needed. We have all kinds of health needs in an elementary school and it’s always diverse and always changing. I enjoy getting to know the students on an individual basis and after their five years at Silver Creek, I sure know some very well :) 

I have a lot of connections and resources in the health care community so please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for any questions or needs. 

All of our health procedures can be found on the Azle ISD Health Services website. I’m looking forward to a great school year!
