I am honored to be the new Principal of Mabry where I will strive to build on the rich tradition of excellence that this community has maintained for forty years. Growing up in Alma, Georgia, a small town in the southeastern part of the state, I often envied my cousins who attended Mabry and Lassiter because of the exceptional opportunities that these schools afforded them. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in communications from the University of South Carolina, and later my teaching certification from Mercer University, I was lucky enough to be offered a teaching position at Lassiter High School in the English department. Throughout my years of teaching at Lassiter I taught a variety of grade levels as well as creative writing classes. During that time I also earned my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.
After six years at Lassiter, I had the opportunity to serve the district as an Area Lead Teacher, which enabled me to support the needs of teachers in multiple schools. I then had the privilege of working as an administrator at Daniell Middle School for three years, at which time I also completed my Ed.S from Berry College in Educational Leadership. Next, I worked for three years as the Assistant Principal at Simpson Middle School before moving on to serve as the Principal for four years at Campbell Middle School in Smyrna. While I truly loved my time at Campbell, I am very excited to join the Mabry team where I look forward to working with staff, students, and parents to ensure that we continue to prioritize an environment where all stakeholders are excited and proud when they walk through the doors of the school. We can only accomplish this by all stakeholders having the opportunity to contribute to our focus, so I look forward to working with you all.
Anthony Cobb Assistant Principal
I am from Statesboro, GA and a family full of teachers. My mother, sister, brother-in-law, aunt, cousin, and wife are all educators. I received degrees from the University of Georgia, Georgia Southern University, and West Georgia University. Go Dawg-eagle-wolves! I taught for 9 years at Dickerson Middle School as a language arts and social studies teacher and worked 1 month at Simpson Middle School as a School Leadership Intern. I have two sons and two Golden Retrievers who occupy most of my time, but when I do get a free minute, I am either working in the yard, watching football, or playing golf.
