Dr. Ashley Johnessee - Principal

Welcome Huskies!

My name is Dr. Ashley Johnessee and I am so proud to be the Principal at Haw Creek!  I began my teaching career at Settles Bridge Elementary as a Kindergarten paraprofessional before teaching both Kindergarten and Fifth Grade at Chestatee Elementary School. I then joined Lambert High School as a part of the English Department where I also served as an Assistant Administrator and Assistant Principal. A proud, double-dawg, I finished my Doctorate in Education from the University of Georgia and am a firm believer in the power of following open doors where they lead you. I am beyond excited to call Haw Creek my new home and to serve our community as principal. I am grateful for the encouragement and support of my husband, Chris and our daughter, Juliana (14). Maggie, my therapy dog, is also excited to join the #huskypack and we look forward to meeting our community!

Mrs. Jordann Aler - Assistant Principal (3rd-5th)

Hello Haw Creek Families!  The 2024 school year marks my eighteenth year in education.  Throughout those years, I have proudly served as an ELA teacher, Instructional Coach, and Assistant Principal.  Originally from Ohio, I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor's degree in English, and later obtained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Nova Southeastern University, and completed my Tier 1 Leadership from West Georgia University.  

As a mother of two boys, I am seeing first-hand the impact that our school system has in shaping them into kind, life-long learners. 

When not at school, my husband, our boys, and dogs are likely to be found at sporting events or boating on Lake Lanier.  

It is a privilege and honor to serve at Haw Creek, where we embody values and behaviors that create the conditions for success.  Sadie & Paisely, my therapy dogs, and I look forward to partnering with you to make this the best year yet!

Hello Haw Creek Huskies!

My name is Traci Avery, and I am honored to be an Assistant Administrator at Haw Creek Elementary this school year. I am a graduate of Georgia Southern University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Special Education. This marks my 20th year in education. I began my teaching career in Cobb County Public Schools before coming to Forsyth County Schools in 2003. In my 20 years of education, I have served as middle school Special Education teacher, K-5 Special Education teacher, and Special Education Department Chair here at Haw Creek.

You can find my husband, Brett, our 19-year-old twins, and I at the lake, traveling, or at UGA football games cheering the Dawgs on when not at school!

I look forward to building relationships with our Haw Creek families this year to help provide the best possible education for our students!
