Ms. Latrice Smalls


It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new interim principal of E.L. Frierson Montessori Elementary School. My name is Latrice Smalls and I am thrilled to be part of such an engaged community.

I bring with me 15 years of experience in education and a deep commitment and passion to providing our students with a high-quality, engaging, and well-rounded education. I have taught and worked in a variety of educational settings, which has allowed me to develop a strong understanding of the unique needs and challenges facing our students today.

As the new Interim Principal, I will provide a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment that fosters the principles of the Montessori Education. My goal is not just to help our students succeed academically, but to prepare them for a lifetime of peace and individuality.

Our team of dedicated and skilled teachers is committed to providing high-quality instruction and personalized support to each and every student. We believe that collaboration between school, parents, and the community is crucial for student success, and we encourage open communication and active engagement from all stakeholders.

I invite you to join us as we work together to create a brighter future for our students and our community. I welcome your ideas, feedback, and involvement.
