• Greetings,

    It is my pleasure, along with the students, staff, and administration of Gideons Elementary School, to welcome you to our website. As I embark on this year as Principal, I am confident that you will find the information on this site useful and that you will learn more about what makes Gideons Elementary School a special place. I am committed to maintaining a positive school culture, high expectations for staff and students, and deep community engagement. 

    Having served as a member of the Gideons team for the past three years, I take on this Principal role having served in various capacities in public and charter schools including Atlanta Public Schools, Fulton County Schools and Dougherty County school districts. With over 15 years experience in education, I plan to use my teaching and leadership background to continue to move Gideons towards greatness. 

    It is my goal that everyone, students, staff, parents and community members, that step into this building are excited to be here. This attitude helps us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in an innovative and nurturing environment. It is also my goal that in everything we do, our students are a constant and number one focus. As we move through this year, please know that my door is always open for you. I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to serve in this role for the 22-23 school year. I look forward to seeing and working with you all! 

    Tiambi Walker
