Hello, and welcome to East Side Elementary. I am Pat Mabry, School Secretary. I began my career at East Side in 1989 as a Kindergarten Paraprofessional. I was a paraprofessional for three years, then hired as the school secretary. I enjoy my job, the day to day operation of the school, working with the students, parents, and staff.
I was born in Marietta, Georgia and attended all Cobb County Schools. My husband and I have been married for 39 years, and we are the proud parents of a wonderful daughter, Leann. Leann holds degrees in Communication/Public Relations and Early Childhood Education, both from Kennesaw State University. Leann is currently employed with Home Depot. In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking, and spending time with my family.
Now, meet the rest of the Office Staff:
