It is my pleasure to serve as principal North Douglas Elementary to assist in maximizing student achievement.  My career began as a paraprofessional in 1996 in Dekalb County. I served as a certified Special education teacher for 8 years, and for four years, I served as a mathematics instructional coach between 2003 and 2007 at the elementary and middle school level in the Atlanta Public School District.  From there I joined Lithia Springs Elementary School as an assistant principal for four years and then Mt. Carmel Elementary for 7 years.  As you can imagine, I have learned a lot since my beginnings in 1996!

We will continue to do FANTASTIC things again  this year at North Douglas Elementary with teachers leading the way.  We will continue to build school pride and make our school the greatest elementary school in Douglas County and in the surrounding area!  I cannot do this alone.  I NEED YOU!  As you all know, the scholars are the reason why I  and many of our teachers do what we do .  Please  know that school safety, student achievement, community involvement and your commitment to your student’s success is important to me.
I look forward to being able to serve you and our scholars a second year!!!
 We are Stingray strong!!!! We will continue in the Relentless Pursuit of Excellence!!

Principal Kelly
