Meet our new principal, Dr.Bell
While in college, Dr.Bell was a student teacher, meaning he would help teachers work with students in their classrooms. Through doing this, Dr.Bell realized that he loved helping kids and wanted to pursue a career in it. When asked, “What is the best part of your job?” Dr. Bell responded, “To be able to shape conditions where kids can win.” Showing that he deeply cares for his students at GIVE East. Before working at GIVE East he worked at Nesbit Elementary for 5 years and Lilburn Middle school for 5 years. We also asked Dr.Bell, “What challenges do you think the youth face today?” Dr. Bell replied “social media because too many kids have access to too much, too early. Students need to be able to communicate in a more appropriate and clearer manner before they use social media outlets.” Something that Dr.Bell loves to do is house hunting. Dr.Bell even says if he were not in education, he would have been a real estate agent. We then asked, “How do you feel here at GIVE East?" He replied, “I love what I do (here). I want to make sure that all students are successful.” Dr.Bell also had something to say about the new hope program everyone has been wanting back, “We are working on developing a program to try to help under credit students." Dr.Bell looks forward to a great school year here at GIVE East.

New Teacher Spotlight
We have a new teacher in town, her name is Felicia Taylor, but she goes by Mrs.Taylor. She says the whole reason she became a teacher is that she likes to teach people the everyday basic skills they will need to survive in the real world. She goes on to say that, the best part of her job is all the different students and different personalities. Each person has his or her own unique ways and personalities. Other than GIVE East, Mrs.Taylor has taught at Monroe Area High School and Alfa academy, which is kind of like GIVE East, it's just the alternative school for Rockdale county. She believes challenges youth face today is cell phones. ‘Youth are so intertwined with their cell phones they can't face the real world.” She also believes youth face lack of communication skills nowadays, but it is because everything they do is through the cell phone. In her free time, instead of scrolling through Facebook, she would rather listen to loud and obnoxious music. Mrs.Taylor loves GIVE East. She loves the students, the staff, and the environment. When you are a sophomore, you have a good chance of getting her because she teaches 10th grade literature and composition.
