Principal's Message

Mrs. Susan Norton


Susan Norton, Principal

Hello Honey Creek!

It is with honor and excitement that I serve in the role of Principal of Honey Creek Elementary School beginning in the 2017-18 school year. I, myself, walked the halls of this school as a young child, attending elementary school at Honey Creek. I have very fond memories of my teachers, friends, and many activities that we participated in, all while developing a strong academic foundation and a love of learning that kept me going through middle school, high school, college and now in my career choice as an adult. My goal is to assist the staff, parents and community of Honey Creek in this same work as we focus on our young people and get them started on their life-long educational path.  

Returning to Honey Creek is like coming full circle. I grew up in this community, but left when I went off to college.   I began my teaching career in Jackson County just after completing my degree at the University of Georgia. It was while in college that I met my husband and we remained in the Athens areas for about 10 years. But, family is strong and it is because of my family that still lives in Conyers that I moved “home” almost 17 years ago. My first school as an employee in RCPS was Barksdale Elementary School. I began as a Teacher, then moved in to the Assistant Principal position of which I served for 10 years, and have just completed my third year as the Principal. The Barksdale and Honey Creek communities share many commonalities and I know that my experiences there will be an asset to me here as I transition and grow here. 

I look forward to meeting each of you and developing a relationship that puts our students and their academic, social, and emotional success first. 

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help and support you.

Sincerely,

Susan Norton
