Forest Hills Elementary School
Meet The Assistant Principals
Hello Forest Hills Family! My name is Clarke Jackson. I am one of your assistant principals here at Forest Hills Elementary. I have been employed in the Florence City Schools system since 2012. I started as the ISS teacher and then transitioned to the Health Education teacher at Florence High School. I was also employed as an athletic trainer for the North Alabama Bone & Joint Clinic, covering Florence High School athletics for 15 years. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences (UAH) and master’s degrees in Health Promotion & Human Performance (UNA) and Physical Education (UNA). I also have Instructional Leadership add-on Certification (UNA).
My role as assistant principal is to provide a safe and secure learning environment and support our students, faculty, and staff. I believe in providing our students with a foundation of love, trust, respect, and discipline while motivating them to become the best versions of themselves mentally, emotionally, physically, and socially. This foundation is key to student development.
Hello Falcon Family! My name is Konnie Lee. I am deeply honored to serve as an Interventionist and Assistant Principal at Forest Hills Elementary School. I began working in the Florence City School System in 2005. During my teaching career, I have taught third grade and served as the TOPS Program teacher. Prior to pursuing a career as an educator, I worked as a Registered Nurse for thirteen years. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Nursing, a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, a master’s degree in Elementary Education, an Education Specialist degree, and an add-on certification in Instructional Leadership, all from the University of North Alabama.
In a fast-paced world filled with uncertainty and continual change, the value of a first-class, high quality education is perhaps more important now than ever before. As an Instructional Leader at Forest Hills Elementary, I am committed to partnering with faculty, staff, and parents to empower students to be their best, and to foster a love for learning that will provide a strong foundation for a bright future. Thank you parents for entrusting your most precious asset to us. I am truly honored and blessed to be a part of Forest Hills Elementary School.
