Ms. Camille Jones

I am extremely honored to serve as the new principal of Briarlake Elementary School.  It is a humbling opportunity to lead a school with such amazing students, dedicated staff and a supportive community.   I have served as the assistant principal of Huntley Hills Elementary and Montessori School for the past six years.   Additionally, I have served as a counselor, teacher, and paraprofessional in the DeKalb County School District. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Brenau University, my Specialist in School Guidance and Counseling from the University of West Georgia, and my Specialist in School Leadership and Administration from Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee.  I am a Georgia native and a DeKalb County School District graduate.   My husband and I are the proud parents of  two girls, and one boy.  As a family we enjoy bike rides, traveling and family movie nights.  

I have enjoyed working with students from various backgrounds and abilities.  My well-rounded experience serving students as a teacher and counselor has enabled me to relate effectively to my students' developmental, academic, personal, and social needs.  As a leader, I know the importance of academic excellence, community involvement, positive school experiences, and supportive programming.   

I am  honored to have been selected to serve the amazing community of Briarlake Elementary and look forward to working with each of you to ensure that our Beavers continue to have a safe and engaging place to grow academically and socially. As a student-focused leader, I believe in creating a positive and collaborative learning environment that will foster opportunities for every student to reach their highest potential.

I look forward to serving the Briarlake community and am grateful for the opportunity to develop positive relationships and outcomes for all students, staff, and parents.

 

Proud to serve,

Camille L. Jones

It is with great enthusiasm and gratitude that I write this letter of introduction as the new Assistant Principal of Briarlake Elementary School. My name is Sarah Milliron, and I am truly honored to serve the Briarlake community in this capacity. I know I am joining a strong, supportive school community with hard working students and an extremely dedicated staff. I come to Briarlake Elementary School with over eleven years of experience in education, including working as a general education teacher in a variety of grades (Pre-K through 5th grade) and serving as a MTSS Specialist for DeKalb County. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Georgia followed by my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Georgia Southern University. Additionally, I have served as a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) coach for seven years and truly believe in the importance of building positive relationships with students, staff, parents, and community members.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my niece and three nephews, reading, going to the movies, and going on walks. I also have two cats named Raven and Bella who I enjoy spending time with. Finally, having been born in Buffalo, New York- I enjoy watching the Bills or Georgia Bulldogs win football games.

I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educator and leader to the Briarlake community to work with you all as a partner in education. I believe that working together we can foster a safe and positive learning environment that is inclusive and equitable for all students. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to meeting and working with the Beaver community to ensure student success.

As a school counselor, I love that I am able to offer students a place where they are able to freely express themselves and feel safe. The elementary school years are a fun time where students are beginning to develop academic self-concept, and confidence as learners. Moreover, it sets the tone for developing positive attitudes and necessary life skills that prepare them to become the next generation of workers, leaders, and decision-makers. 

I have many responsibilities, as a school counselor, to include: academic support, goal setting, career awareness and exploration, understanding self, peer relationships, coping strategies, individual and small-group counseling, classroom guidance, one-on-one parent conferencing, and peer support; thus, ensuring a positive and solid foundation for future academic and personal/social success for all students.   

I am extremely grateful to be a part of such an awesome team and I look forward to serving this community for many more years to come!
