Chesnut Charter Elementary School in Dunwoody will have a completely new management team in place when the kids go back to school. It was announced this week that both Principal, Dr. Angelique Conner and Assistant Principal, Ms. Ellen Malka are leaving Chesnut to pursue other opportunities within DeKalb County.
Both positions have already been filled and I am told the applicants resumes look very strong with great skills and will bring many positive things to Chesnut. The new principal will be Dr. Richard Reid, a veteran principal who comes to us from Forrest Hills Elementary School in Decatur. The new Assistant Principal will be Ms. Veronica Williams, a current 4th grade teacher at Montgomery with VERY strong academic and instructional skills.
Both are very aware of the Charter and all that comes with it and both are very aware of Chesnut's history of “intense” parental involvement and are welcoming to both.
Welcome to Dr. Reid and Ms. Williams.
