Courtney Hardy, Student Services Administrator

I am entering my seventh year at East Side Elementary School and I am

thrilled to continue working with this amazing staff and community!

This is my 5th year in the Student Services Administrator position

and my 7th year in special education district leadership. I have previously served at Shallowford Falls Elementary and Palmer Middle School. This year I additionally work with Sedalia Park Elementary School.

Prior to serving in an administrative role I taught as a special education teacher in a variety of roles and schools around the district, as well as, in Henry County. My experience is unique in that it is evenly split between elementary school and middle school.

I attended the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and earned an undergraduate and Master’s degree in Social Work with a focus in school social work. I earned an Additional Master’s degree in Behavior and Learning Disabilities from Georgia State University. Recently I graduated with a Specialist Degree in Instructional Technology from KSU and went on to earn an additional add-on in Educational Leadership.

I live in East Cobb and love running into East Side families when out and about!  My two children are both East Side Eagles and will be in the 4th grade this year.

I look forward to another great year at East Side! Please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time. As I am split between two schools this year, email is typically the quickest way to reach me. My email address is
