Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jay Patel

My name is Mr. Jay Patel and I would like to welcome your scholar to my Social Studies class. This is my 7th year of teaching. I received my Bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education from Georgia State University. I am certified in Middle Grades (4-8) Social Studies. I have previously taught 7th grade Social Studies and 6th grade Science. I look forward to working with the students at ARMS to provide scholars with a new style of thinking and using their imaginations while exploring various aspects of Social Studies. I am also the Head Boys Varsity Soccer coach at Stockbridge High School and will be entering my 5th season as head coach. 

I look forward to getting to know you and your scholar this year. I am available to meet with parents during my planning time which is from 2.45pm until 3.45pm. I am also available before school from 8am until 8.30am. If you would like to schedule a parent conference, please feel free to email me. Conferences with parents during instructional time will not be available. I check my email daily, therefore it will be the most efficient way to get in contact with me. Feel free to email me at any time, at

If you have any special questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to come by to see me (appointments only, please), send a note with your child in the morning, e-mail, or call the school at 770-507-5407 to set up a conference.

I am a believer in team work and together we can conquer the most important job in our lives and that is to help your scholar become what they can be. I am excited with having this challenge and look forward to being a part of your scholar's education. It is an honor and priviledge to be your scholar's Social Studies educator this year and look forward to the partnership between educator and parent.  

Best wishes for a truly successful year.
