A Message from Principal - Dr. Andrea Jenkins-Mann

Dear McCleskey Family,

It is with extreme pleasure that I greet you as the newly appointed and proud principal of McCleskey Middle school. I have already enjoyed one of the best, most smooth transitions of any incoming principal due in no small part to the awesome, newly retired principal, Claire Lyons. I already love the school, the staff, and the students. I could not be more honored to have been welcomed to such a phenomenal school in such a great community! So who am I?

I am a native New Orleanian and started my teaching career there. I taught Middle and High School English/Language Arts for 8.5 years and served as an administrator in Elementary and High Schools in both Louisiana and Georgia for the last 14 years. I relocated to Georgia in 2005 and began my career as an administrator serving in three high schools: Kennesaw Mountain (2006-2009), Wheeler (2009-2015), and Pope (2015-2017). I have had nothing but wonderful experiences in Cobb County and I look forward to this next, promising adventure.

Here is what I know already: McCleskey is one of Cobb County's premiere schools. Students are hardworking and well behaved. The entire school staff are nurturing and focused on students' success. Our community is involved and supportive. Again, I could not ask for a better place to lead and learn. I inherited a school where the collective commitments are to: Keep students first; Model respect and kindness for all; Create a positive and engaging environment; and Support each other. Those are commitments I make and endeavor to keep to you.

I will always avail myself to you because I realize that, "No man is an island," and that no one's success happens in isolation. I ascribe to the saying, "If you do something you love, you'll never work a day in your life," so I have not worked in over twenty years. I look forward to a long and wonderfully successful relationship with you.

Dr. Andrea Jenkins-Mann
