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!

Jean Filsaime Pierre
Assistant Administrator

I am blessed to return to Clarkdale as an administrator. This is my first year as a School Leadership Intern after previously serving this school for seven years as a social worker. I have served Austell Intermediate (Hendricks), Austell Elementary, Compton Elementary, Cooper Middle and South Cobb High School, as well as multiple grade levels in New Jersey. I earned my Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from Berry College, Masters in Social Work from Rutgers University, a Bachelor in Social Work, and an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Manhattan Community College in New York.
During my 20 year career I have always believed that all students can learn in their own ways and they need all kinds of support to be put in place to be successful.
