Principal's Corner

Principal of Dorsett Shoals Elementary School

I am excited to be your principal for the 2020-2021 school year.  Dorsett Shoals Elementary has the reputation of having high academic standards. Our vision is to excel and ensure that all of our students are successful.  Our job is to provide our students with the tools they need to help them accomplish their dreams. 

As the principal of Dorsett Shoals, I would like to share my vision for the school. I believe all students will learn when given the opportunity.  For students to learn at an optimal level, behavior must be exemplary.  Teachers and students need every minute of instructional time to count, so we will hold high behavioral expectations for all students.  In addition, I believe that teachers and students should be recognized and rewarded for their accomplishments.  I want Dorsett Shoals to be a school that children are excited to attend and where parents and community feel welcomed.  We all have one common goal, and that is the success of your child. When we work together as a team, your child is going to have a successful year. We are truly here to serve and look forward to an excellent school year. 

Our vision at DSE is to Cultivate a supportive, creative, and enriching environment that inspires ALL to develop a Determination to reach goals, the Skills to thrive as 21st century learners and an Excitement for learning.  #pantherpackstrong

If you need assistance, please don't hesitate to call your child's teacher, myself or our wonderful Assistant Principal, Heather George. 

Please read our student handbook and review the expectations and procedures with your child/children. If you need additional information, please visit our school, call us at 770-651-3700, or visit our website.
