    Dr. Kristen McRae 
    TRE Principal

    Greetings Parents and Stakeholders of the Timber Ridge Elementary Community!

    It is with great honor and pleasure that I serve as the principal of Timber Ridge Elementary.  Being appointed as the administrative leader of such an exceptional school came to fruition as a result of a unanimous vote by our Henry County Board Members on Monday, April 10, 2017-a day that I will remember for many years to come! 

    My passion for education and supporting the growth and development of young minds has been shaped and cultivated as a result of both teacher and leader experiences and opportunities.  Prior to my recent appointment as principal, I was an assistant principal at Mt. Carmel Elementary in Henry County, and previous to that I was an assistant principal at an elementary school in Clayton County.  As a result, I understand the importance of carrying out the vision, mission, and beliefs held by our district.  My teaching and academic coaching experiences have extended into the secondary level where I served as a Mathematics Instructional Facilitator and Middle Grades Mathematics teacher.  As a former high school graduate of the Henry County School District, it didn’t take me long to realize in my professional journey that Henry County was where my heart would reside. 

    I am looking forward to an exciting school year, and meeting and/or reuniting with our Timber Ridge families, staff members, students, and community members.  Each stakeholder has a vital role in ensuring success for each student with whom we educate.  I love that this Timber Ridge community has an immense enthusiasm and pride for the school and community at large.  It is with that same enthusiasm and pride that I commit to remaining an integral part of the Titan community and working with each of you as we continue providing an excellent educational experience for our students.   

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, praises, concerns, or feedback.  I am available by email at Kristen.mcrae@henry.k12.ga.us or by phone at 770-288-3237.

    In partnership with you,
    Kristen McRae, Ed. D.
