Dear Parents:


    My name is Mrs. Darline Octavius-Pierre, I will be your child’s teacher for the school year 2023-2024. I would like to warmly welcome you and your child to an exciting year of first grade! I will be here to support you and your child as we navigate through the school year.  Our incredible team of first-grade teachers has worked diligently to prepare fun and engaging ways to interact with the students while creating a safe environment for them to share their ideas as they learn the skills needed to be successful.


    My career as an educator started in Florida about 6 years ago. I worked as an Exceptional Student Education (ESE) teacher at Hollywood Central Elementary in Florida. Last year, I relocated to the state of Georgia from Florida. I taught first grade at Locust Grove Elementary. I graduated from Miami Dade College and am currently enrolled at St. Thomas University to obtain a master’s degree in Elementary Education. I am thrilled to continue my journey as a teacher here to make a positive impact in the lives of my students.


    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach me via email at doctaviuspierre@henry.k12.ga.us or by telephone at 770-898-8886 or ClassDojo.


    I am excited to be your child's teacher. I look forward to an amazing school year.


    Sincerely yours,




    Mrs. Darline Octavius-Pierre
