Hello DHMS Families!


I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer and are geared up for another great school year!


For those of you who don’t know me, in addition to representing you on the school board, I am also a mother – with an 8th grade son at Druid Hills Middle and an 11th grade exchange student at Druid Hills High.  I have worked in the government and nonprofit sectors for more than 20 years, including as a science and English teacher with the US Peace Corps.  It is my honor and privilege to serve you on the DeKalb County School Board.


I am excited to announce that our new superintendent, Dr. Horton, will be joining me for two townhalls this semester.  The first is Tuesday, October 3rd at 6:30pm at Druid Hills Middle, and the second is Wednesday, October 11th at 6:30pm at Cross Keys High.  Interpretation services will be available at both locations.  I hope to see you there!


My goal is always to be accessible and available.  If you have a question, comment, or would like to meet, I can be reached at [email protected] or 404-946-8344. You may also wish to subscribe to my bi-weekly newsletter ( or follow me on Facebook (  Finally, if you would like to watch, attend, or speak at an upcoming school board meeting, that information is available here:


Wishing you a wonderful school year!
