Clarkdale Administration

It is such a joy and honor to be the principal at Clarkdale Elementary School. I am super excited about our “star-studded” year and our ‘five-star’ approach to teaching and learning. It is my hope that you engage in our efforts to increase overall student achievement and success. Again, this year, our students will have SWAG- Students with Academic Goals. This will allow a laser sharp focus on specific academic performance for all students. I thank you in advance for all that you do to support your child(ren) and Clarkdale as we strive to become a National School of Excellence!

Lorna Holt
Assistant Principal

As I embark upon my 3rd year as Clarkdale’s Assistant Principal, I look forward to serving the Clarkdale community. Over the course of my 30-year career, I have served as a School Leadership Intern, a Math Academic Coach, and taught 5th grade in Cobb. I taught Physical Education and coached high school volleyball in Atlanta Public Schools, taught 2nd grade in Germany at Hahn Air Force Base, and 3rd grade in Florida.
My credentials include a bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Early Childhood Certification from East Tennessee State University, and master’s degree in Educational Leadership with a Technology Concentration from Kennesaw State University.
My belief is that education is the key that opens the doors of opportunity.

Jean Filsaime Pierre
Assistant Principal

I am blessed to become an Assistant Principal at Clarkdale Elementary School after previously serving the school for many years. I have served numerous schools in Cobb County in the past at the high school, middle school, and elementary school levels. I have also served many schools in Troup County, Georgia and in Elizabeth, New Jersey. I earned my Educational Specialist Degree from Berry College. During my many years in education, I always believe that “all students can learn” in their own ways and they need all kinds of support to be put in place to be successful!
