Community, Tate Elem

Jasper, GA – On July 24, 2017, Stephanie Hall was approved to be the new Principal for Tate Elementary School for the 2017-18 school year. Former Principal, Sandy Layman took a position at the Central Office.

Hall graduated from Pickens High School in 1988 and then attended North Georgia College where she received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Elementary Education.

Her teaching career began at Tate Elementary, in 1992, where she taught for 14 years. In 2006, she transferred to Jasper Elementary School to become the Academic Coach and spent 10 years providing professional support for JES teachers.

For the 2016-17 school year Hall served as Assistant Principal at Jasper Elementary School.

In her bio for Tate Elementary, Principal Hall shared,

“My goal for the Tate Elementary School is simple. I want every child that enters our building to feel loved, safe, accepted, successful, and prepared for the next level. I’m hopeful that our families will feel welcome, respected, and will become our partner in their child’s education. Lastly, I want our staff to feel highly valued and respected by all stakeholders as they persistently work to ensure the success of every child at Tate Elementary. The mission of Tate Elementary School is Teaching All To achieve Excellence (TATE).”

Parents look forward to seeing what Hall will bring to Tate this school year.
