Our Principals are dedicated leaders, and we’ll be introducing you over the coming days to Principals who are new to the role or who are serving at new schools this year. Please help us celebrate Teasley Middle School’s new leader: Principal Kathie Monti!
Kathie Monti excels in everything she does, and it came as no surprise to all who know her when she was tapped to lead Teasley Middle School.
The current 2020 Georgia Middle School Assistant Principal of the Year title holder, Ms. Monti was tapped this spring to serve as Teasley’s next Principal. She earned the statewide award from the Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals for her exceptional service to the staff, students and families of E.T. Booth MS, where she served for seven years.
“I am most looking forward to seeing the students,” Principal Monti said of her new role at Teasley MS. “Administration, teachers, and staff have missed the energy that our children bring with them each day.”
The 25-year educator previously taught middle school English language arts and reading and earned the Teacher of the Year title for both Marietta Middle School and the Marietta City School System, and then advanced to be named a finalist for Georgia Teacher of the Year. She later worked for the Georgia Department of Education as a teacher advisor for Race to the Top and trainer for the Teacher Keys Evaluation System before joining CCSD in 2013.
“Kathie is known statewide as stellar educator and administrator, and we’re so proud to name her one of our Principals,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “We know she will provide strong support and leadership for Teasley’s outstanding faculty and staff as they continue their work to help every child succeed.”
Principal Monti earned her education degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, followed by a master’s degree in education and an educational leadership degree from Kennesaw State University. She and her husband, Thomas, have four children.
How can parents be more involved? “We are so excited about our new PTSA Board,” Principal Monti said. “This group of parents is energetic, creative, and ready to work hard for the students and teachers at Teasley. We would love for our parents to join the PTSA, and then sign up to assist with PTSA-sponsored projects.”
