  • Tracee Ragland is a 16-year veteran educator from Chicago, who believes that education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. After obtaining her B.S. in Marketing from Grambling State University, she answered a divine calling to pursue a career in education. Tracee spent 2 years teaching in a k-8 school in Chicago while completing her M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction at National-Louis University. After relocating to Atlanta, Tracee continued to successfully impact student achievement as a middle school mathematics teacher in Atlanta Public Schools for 8 years. During this time, she began honing her leadership experience as a math department chair and PBIS coach. Realizing her desire to affect change beyond her own classroom, Tracee received her Ed.S. in Leadership from the University of Phoenix and became an elementary math instructional coach supporting teacher development for 3 years. In 2018, Tracee joined the Panther Family as the math instructional coach and, after 3 years, transitioned to 6-12 Math Program Specialist, in which she provided coaching support to eleven middle schools across the north and south areas of Fulton County Schools. Over the course of her professional career, Tracee has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in the areas of curriculum and instruction and teacher development. She has extended her knowledge through professional presentations to audiences within and out of the district on instructional coaching, MTSS support, and effective mathematics teaching practices. She intends to leverage her knowledge, experience, and love for children as she proudly embarks on her Assistant Principal journey, back in the halls of Paul D. West Middle School, a place she calls home. Outside of her professional life, Tracee enjoys unique foodie experiences and spending time with her son Maison Rae and their really cool Golden Doodle, Leo.
