Principal West has been a kindergarten, 4th grade, 6th grade, EIP and Title I teacher and has served as an assistant principal. Dr. West is also an adjunct professor at Georgia State University and Georgia Regents University.
Rooted in the belief that it is the responsibility of the school, parents, and the community to nurture students’ dreams and feed their desire for knowledge, Principal West told Talk Up, ” I am personally welcoming and inviting our parents to take an active role in our school and be visible – join PTA, utilize the Parent Center, volunteer wherever needed, or tell us their talents and we will assist them in discovering the best way to participate in the lives of our students.”
The teachers and staff have been busy this summer planning exciting opportunities that will make Dobbs a great place to teach and learn. Plans are underway for building a playground on the campus, designing a new website, launching a Dobbs Facebook page, organizing student clubs and creating Parent University.
Dobbs Elementary students reside in Atlanta’s south region, matriculating to Long Middle School and graduating from South Atlanta High School.
