Principal's Message

Welcome TEAM Chastain Road! As the principal at Chastain Road Elementary, I am honored to serve such a great community.  I am excited for the future of CRE and the culture of excellence that we will continue to build. It is my vision to build a culture of excellence through innovation, collaboration, and continuous learning.  We will do this by following five basic principles:

1.     Reach

2.     Teach

3.     Grow

4.     Support 

5.     Serve 

I have a passion for education and work daily to make a difference in the lives of students.  I have had the wonderful opportunity to be an educator for 12 years.  During my career, I have had a variety of experience ranging from the local, state, and national levels.  I started as a classroom teacher, moved into administration as an assistant principal four years later, then worked as a Regional Master Teacher for the state for 3 years, and most recently as the Director of Instructional Technology and Assessment for Anderson District Four.

On a personal level, I love calling Liberty my home and I am excited to have the opportunity to work in my community.  I have been married to my wonderful husband, who is a Liberty High School graduate, for 9 years.  We are blessed to have twin boys who are 2 ½ years old, Beau and Luke.  They are our world and we enjoy spending time together as a family.

Please know that it is my mission to always do what is best for our students at CRE.  If there is ever anything you need, please feel free to contact me.  I am looking forward to seeing CRE soar!

Striving for excellence,

Jessica Patterson
