Mr. Christopher Gomillion
Greetings Continental Colony family,
I am thrilled to serve as your assistant principal, and to be a part of a school with such a strong commitment to students and their success. As a native from Atlanta I have seen this school flourish and grow into the resilient pillar of the community it is today, and I am delighted to be a part of the CCES team in taking us to the next level of success.
I was led to the education profession because helping children to learn academically and socially came natural to me. Not only did it come natural, but I found fulfillment, pride and joy in being a part of helping a child to be the best he or she can be. I feel if what you are doing isn’t making a difference then why do it.
I have been with the Atlanta Public Schools System for a total of fifteen years. I spent ten years in the classroom as a 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade teacher. I then served as an instructional coach where I managed the math and science instructional program. I bring with me a set of skills that I will use to build trusting relationships among the students, staff and community. I will be committed, trustworthy and diligent in preparing our students to be college and career ready. I believe it’s not a difficult thing to inspire students to learn as long as there are several key components present. If learning is engaging, relevant and rigorous then students will have no choice but to have a quality learning experience.
I am excited for what’s about happen at the great Continental Colony Elementary school. We have the right people in the right place. Together as a collective effort, we will help create life chances for our students to do great things in life!
Christopher Gomillion Ed. S.
