• Instructional Lead Teacher (ILT): Mrs. Krystal Shaw

    Greetings, Pate's Creek Family!
       I am delighted to begin the 2020-2021 school year as Pate's Creek Elementary's  Instructional Lead Teacher (ILT). The focus of my role is to provide teacher support throughout the building in the areas of curriculum, instruction, and assessment for the areas identified in our Title I Continous School Improvement Plan. Over the course of this school year I will be working with teachers at the school, grade, and individual level on the planning and implementation of the Henry County Teaching and Learning Standards (HTLS).  One of my fundamental beliefs as an educator is that when given the opportunity to be in a highly effective instructional environment, all students can and will succeed. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing our PCE students excel and achieve great things, and I am thrilled to be able to help support our teachers and students in this role.
        This is my 18th year in education, having served in Henry County Schools for the last 14 years. Over the course of my career I have served as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University in 2003, followed by my Master's Degree in Elementary Literacy Education in 2006. In 2011, I completed my Educational Specialist's Degree in Elementary Math Education and completed my Leadership Certification through Mercer University in 2013. I am currently working on my Educational Doctoral Degree (Ed.D.) in School Improvement at the University of West Georgia. I am currently certified in Early Childhood Education and Educational Leadership.
        My husband and I live locally in Henry County with our 4 children. We enjoy being actively involved in our church community and on any given day you will be likely to find us at the baseball field watching our boys play ball or at the ballet company where one of our daughers dances. Some of my personal hobbies include running and reading.
        If I can be of any help to you, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at kshaw@henry.k12.ga.us or by phone at 770-389-8819.
