Ashley Wampler   Rena DanielMarcy O'TooleKatie Johns
​My name is Ashley Wampler. I have taught for 6 years, all of them in Fulton County. I have experience in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. Recently, I completed my Master's in Education with a concentration in reading and literacy. I wish to serve on the School Governance Council because I am dedicated to the success of our students and our school. I enjoy being involved in a wide variety of experiences, and would like to be a part of the decisions that SGC makes for Dunwoody Springs.

My name is Rena Daniel. I feel I am a great candidate for the open parent position for the Dunwoody Springs Elementary School Governance Council. My qualifications include an academic background and experience in Early Childhood Education. I graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southwestern State University. I continued my studies and completed the Master of Science in Early Childhood Education in 2003 also from Georgia Southwestern State University. After earning a Masters of Science, in 2006, I graduated with a Specialist in Early Childhood Education from Troy State University.

In addition to my academic experience, my teaching experience, and leadership roles within Elementary education further qualify me to serve on the DSES SGC. I began my teaching career in 2000 at Sarah Cobb Elementary in Americus, GA where I taught 3rd, 4th, & 5th grades. Additionally, at SCES, I served as a GA Southwestern State University Master Teacher, a Lead teacher, the Chairman of the School Council, and was voted Teacher of the Year in 2005-2006. In 2008, I continued my career at Mt. Carmel Elementary in Douglasville, GA where I taught 4th grade, served as grade level chair, provided staff trainings, served on the Media Technology Committee, and was once again awarded the great honor of representing my school as the Teacher of the Year in 2011-2012.

My academic background and experience with Elementary education would be an asset to the Dunwoody Springs Elementary School Governance Council. If elected as a parent representative, I will serve as a voice in the decision making process to help determine the long-term direction of DSES, support and help increase academic achievement, and serve as a voice and ambassador for our community.
​Hello, my name is Marcy O’Toole and would love your vote for the School Governance Council at Dunwoody Springs Elementary School. I currently am guardian to two students at DSES (kindergarten and 1st grade). I have been their guardian since 2012. I am actively involved with their teachers and we attend many of the after school events such as PBL nights and dances. Being involved in their school is very important to me as their education is one of the things that will set them up for future success whether in school or after they graduate. If elected, I promise to be fair minded and to be an advocate for the students. Please consider me to a member of the next School Governance Council. Thank you!​My name is Katie Johns, and I teach the K-5 Science Lab at Dunwoody Springs Elementary. I have been in education for the past 8 years as an elementary school teacher, serving all grade levels and subject areas. It is my desire to be a part of the School Governance Council to help make a positive impact on our school community. Through working with stakeholders, I hope to help create long-term goals and decisions that align with the core values of our school.

 

 

 

 


 

Every year, the state rates schools based on several data points.  One of these data points is a survey that all staff, students, and parents complete about our school.  You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone or tablet.  If you do not have access to the Internet, you are welcome to take the survey at DSES.  We encourage all parents to take the survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating.  No parent participation or low parent participation will negatively impact our school's School Climate Star Rating from the state. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Results from the survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  We greatly appreciate your time and effort!

Personalized Learning Devices

At our recent School Governance Council meeting, our SGC approved our recommendation for the Dell Latitude 11 laptop. Our Personalized Learning team, comprised of teachers several grade levels and support staff, compared each of the four available devices (click here for Device Q&A) to see which best supported our instructional model. Click here to see Dunwoody Springs' Instructional Model. 

As part of our current SPLOST and Fulton County's Personalized Learning initiative, we will be receiving 10 of these devices for every 30 students enrolled. We expect to receive these devices in the fall! This is very exciting for Dunwoody Springs and we are looking forward to utilizing these new tools to challenge and engage our students.
