Welcome to Walt Disney Elementary!
I am very excited to be the principal and to work with the incredible students, families, and professional educators that make up the Disney school community. Each year, we welcome approximately 380 students in preschool through fifth grade. Our teachers work in teams and collaborate with specialists, curriculum leaders, and special education staff to ensure high levels of learning for each student. We are also committed to meeting each student's behavioral, social, and emotional needs. We believe that to teach students, the most important thing we do is create and nurture relationships with students and families. The entire staff is committed to making school a great experience for our students!
We hope to involve our families and community in many ways. From homework support to volunteering, we want families to be involved and to know that they are an essential part of the schooling experience at Disney.
Mrs. Cindy Scharff
I am so excited for this school year! My name is Brittany Wunderlich, and I am the administrative intern. This will be my fourth year in this role in Millard Public Schools and my second year as a Disney Dolphin. Before being at Disney, I was at Upchurch Elementary School for eight years in various roles, such as the administrative intern, instructional facilitator, and third-grade teacher.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology from Northwest Missouri State. I also have two master’s degrees. My first is in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Inclusionary Practices from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and my second is an Educational Leadership degree from Doane University.
While I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I met during our first year of teaching, and we have been married for six years. We have a daughter, Shay, who brings us so much joy, and we have another daughter on the way, expected in October. In my spare time, I love doing yard work, running, and reading.
I have always had a passion for education. Our goal is for students to love coming to school every day and to work with our families and community to help them reach their full potential. Please reach out if you have questions or concerns. Welcome to the 22-23 school year!
