Principal - Mrs. Copper
My name is Mrs. Tracie Copper, and I am proud to serve as the principal of Pleasant Grove Elementary STEM School. I have served as educator for over 25 years, and I am truly grateful to continue to lead the only Georgia STEM Certified School in Henry County. My goal as a school administrator is to work with phenomenal educators to ensure our students receive the best educational experience, from the best teachers, with the best resources.
I am extremely proud of the work we have done at PGE and will continue to dedicate my efforts to shape a profound school that produces extraordinary problem solvers, critical thinkers, scientist, engineers, performers and innovators. I will continue to create a school culture that promote inner talents, parent and community involvement, support teacher leaders, and collaborate with local businesses to meet the diverse academic needs of learners. At PGE, our priorities include working together to encourage our students take risk, thrive, and to build self-efficacy. In a safe, happy learning and socially growing environment.
I am a proud Alumni of Xavier University of Louisiana where I earned multiple degrees. My educational journey has been wonderful and very surprising to many as I recently earned a degree from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School of of Pastry and Patersiree. Yes, I will answer to “Chef”. I believe learning never ends; however, there is something extremely special about enhancing your inner talents. My love for education and for baking gourmet desserts take center stage when I am teaching a STEM lesson to students, creating unique treats from the produce in the Outdoor Science Lab, collaborating with teachers or connecting with Partners in Education.
Education is a true passion of mine, and I am so honored to share it with others as we journey through another successful school year. Our theme, One Pack... Unity in Our Diversity will allow us to inspire, nurture, challenge, enhance, build up the best qualities of our students and teachers. I am so excited, let’s have a fantastic 2020-21 school year! Please refer to the Parent Portal for current academic information. Communication will be shared with our school community through Twitter, Facebook, the school's website and monthly newsletters.
It is truly a privilege to be a part of the learning community where everyone strives to build positive relationships. Together I am certain that we will have a great school year!
