Lower School Principal

Mrs. Evans has been an educator for nearly 20 years. She received both a B.S. degree in Elementary Education and an M.S. in Educational Leadership from Mississippi College. Most of her teaching experience has been in the Madison County School District as a teacher, interventionist, and literacy specialist. The Evans clan joined Saint Augustine School in 2016, and each year they have grown in their love and appreciation for the education and discipleship their family has found.

Dara and her husband Mark live in Madison with their three children, and they are active members of Broadmoor Baptist Church.
