Assistant Principal's Message

Mrs. Dana Smith

Hello Emerson Eagles!   

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I am extremely excited for my 2nd year with the Bartow County Schoolsā€™ family and proud to be the assistant principal of Emerson Elementary. 


I am a resident of Bartow County and a product of Bartow County Schools. I attended South Central Middle School and graduated from Cass High School in 2000. I started my career an elementary school teacher and then moved into a math coach position. I was previously a K-12 Math Coordinator for three years. This is my 2nd year as the Assistant Principal at Emerson Elementary. 


As an instructional leader to the school, I am committed to ensuring our school provides quality experiences that address the academic, social and emotional needs of every child for them to reach their full potential. I am confident that we have an amazing staff of dedicated professionals who are passionate about education and are committed to meeting the needs of all students.


I firmly believe that parent and community involvement, as well as communication and collaboration are essential to the overall success of our school.  So, I am excited to get to know each of you, as we all team up for success at EES. With your support and involvement, Iā€™m confident our school will continue to be a wonderful place for students to learn and grow!
