Ms. Behanna is proud to have been a part of the Rocky Top community since the day Adams 12 Five Star Schools broke ground on the school. As a Technology Integration Specialist in the Information Technology Department she was an integral part of the planning team, ensuring that the school was built to maximize the use of educational technology to result in a high level of academic achievement. She officially joined the staff in 2006 as the assistant principal responsible for consistent and effective implementation of core curricular instruction, meeting the needs of English Language Learners and increasing parent involvement throughout the educational community. Chelsea earned the position of Principal in 2009 and has enjoyed supporting the learning environment of Rocky Top as not only the numbers of students have grown but so has the achievement and growth.
In her time away from school Ms. Behanna loves skiing with her 11 year old daughter, Josie, and going to see great concerts with her 24 year old daughter, Lacey. They all spend a lot of time together as a family with their dog, Salchicha, and their cat, Punkin.
