Jennifer Westbrook, assistant principal at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy in Gainesville since 2011, will be the new principal at Mount Vernon Exploratory School in Hall County.

Hall County Superintendent Will Schofield announced Thursday that he would recommend Westbrook for the new position. The county school board will consider her appointment at its July 18 meeting.

Westbrook has taught in Buford and Gainesville city schools. She lives in the North Hall area.

She taught kindergarten at Enota from 2000-2002 and was K-5th grade gifted teacher from 2007-2011. She was instructional coach at Enota in 2010-11.

She was at Buford Elementary School from 2003-2007 and taught in the Clarke County School District at Oglethorpe Avenue Elementary for 2002-03.

Westbrook has two educational specialist degrees — one in school leadership from North Georgia College and State University in 2010 and one in early childhood education from Brenau University in 2007.

She earned a master of education in 2002 and a Bachelor of Science in education in 2000 from the University of Georgia.

She is a 1996 graduate of Gainesville High School.

Westbrook is the secretary for the board of directors of the Gateway Domestic Violence Center and a member and Kids Cove volunteer at Lakewood Baptist Church.

The principal at Mount Vernon, Connie Daniels, has accepted the position of finance director with the Lumpkin County school system, Schofield said.
