MHS Educator Named New
Marietta Middle School Principal
Forrestella Taylor, Replaces Dr. Tim Jones

MARIETTA, GA -The Board of Education of the City of Marietta has named Forrestella Taylor—currently a ninth grade Assistant Principal at Marietta High School (MHS)—as the new Principal at Marietta Middle School. Taylor replaces Dr. Tim Jones, after 12 years of service to the school system effective July 22, 2013. Dr. Jones recently accepted a position as Principal of B.E.S.T. Academy High School at Atlanta Public Schools effective August 1, 2013.

Taylor has served as the ninth grade Assistant Principal at MHS since 2011, and currently oversees the MHS Quest Performance Learning Center (PLC). She has also served as an Assistant Principal at A.L. Burruss and Dunleith Elementary from 2005 – 2011, and as an elementary grades teacher at Marietta City Schools, Burlington Township Schools and Trenton Public Schools in New Jersey.

“Forrestella’s leadership in initiatives focused on student transition from middle school to ninth grade, and implementation of blended learning opportunities such as the Quest PLC at Marietta High School provide her with a strong experience base in working with middle school students and educators,” said Dr. Emily Lembeck, Superintendent Marietta City Schools.

A graduate of Kennesaw State University, Taylor earned a Master of Education at that institute, and an Education Specialist degree at Argosy University. She earned a Bachelor of Science at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Taylor holds professional certification in Educational Leadership (grades P-12).
