My name is Casandra Coleman, and I am extremely excited to join the team at A.Z. Kelsey Academy as Assistant Principal. Education is an absolute passion of mine, and I am ecstatic to continue this passion with the AZK Community. I am eagerly looking forward to all the positive things each school year will bring for our students, parents, staff, and community.
This will be my 18th year in my educational journey. Although growing up in New York, my post-secondary education began at Florida Atlantic University, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education. After relocating to Georgia, I obtained my master’s degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, as well as an Educational Specialist Degree in Performance Based Leadership at Valdosta State University.
Prior to becoming an Assistant Principal, I served as a Teacher, Instructional Coach, School Improvement Specialist, and Reading Endorsement Instructor in Fulton County Schools. Additionally, I have supported school improvement efforts in school districts throughout the state of Georgia as a Language & Literacy Specialist for the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, as well as a Literacy Mentor at the Sandra Dunagan Deal Center at Georgia College. I have been married to my wonderful husband for the past 21 years, and together we have two amazing children!
I am proud serve as a member of a team that changes lives by changing mindsets! I look forward to continuing to foster an academic environment that is focused and caring, collectively investing time to ensure that scholars reach their full potential, academically, behaviorally, emotionally, and socially. Again, I am ecstatic to be a part of A.Z. Kelsey Academy and embark on another journey in my quest to serve students and continue to grow professionally.
