Andrea McGee has been Principal of Eagle Springs Elementary School for twelve years, overseeing exciting changes during this time. Eagle Springs, the largest elementary school in Houston County, was designated as a Title 1 school in 2009. While some parents were concerned by this designation, McGee worked diligently to ensure the school’s image would continue to shine. As a result, Eagle Springs was recognized as a Title 1 Distinguished School for six years and a Title 1 Reward School for Highest Performance in 2015 and 2016. McGee is considered a trailblazer for spearheading a campaign to seek STEM Certification, succeeding in January 2016 after three years of education, planning, innovation, and partnerships. She inspired and motivated teachers to learn to approach teaching in new ways and helped the school district and community gain a greater awareness of the importance of STEM education. She serves on the STEM committee for Houston County, has been District President of the Georgia Association of Elementary School Principals, and shares her valuable knowledge and experience as head of the Houston County Principal Mentor Group. McGee was awarded District 11 Georgia Distinguished Principal in 2011 and holds an Ed.D. from Argosy University and a Masters in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southwestern University.
