Mrs. Rosengren

Mrs. RosengrenMrs. Mary Rosengren is the Mabry Middle School Secretary. She has been working for Cobb County schools for 25 year and began as a substitute teacher in the 80’s. She has been a special ed parapro at Kincaid Elementary, worked at the “The Children’s Center” in Marietta, which was later named The Hawthorne Center in Smyrna and is now called Haven Academy. After working there for several years, Mrs. Rosengren transferred to Central Alternative. In 1996, she became the secretary for Mabry Middle School and has called Mabry home for 10 years.

Mrs. Rosengrean and her husband of almost 40 years, Erik, employed with IBM for 36 years have three children, twin boys who were born in Germany and a daughter who was born in New Jersey. The Rosengrens moved to Marietta from New Jersey 27 years ago. She says that she will never return and states, "In fact, I am still trying to lose the Jersey accent!"

Mrs. Rosengren has three grandchildren and one great grandchild. The eldest child is Erik (yes, another Erik in the family) is 20 years old and in the National Guard for training; he has a daughter, Ansley, Mrs. Rosengren's great granddaughter, who is 2. Her next grandchild is Isabella (named after her great great grandmother), she is 8, and she resides in North Caroline with her mother. Last, but not least, is Tyler. He is Mrs. Rosengren's daughter’s son. He is 5 years old and beginning school this year. He says he really enjoys riding the “big boy’s bus” to school.

What a fun time it is at the Rosengren house during the Christmas holidays. Mrs. Rosengren loves spending time with her family, watching the Braves and Falcons with Tyler, who calls her “His GaGa”, and shopping with her daughter and grandson. Mrs. Rosengren also enjoy reading, gardening, and working on the computer. Mrs. Rosengren's father-in-law, Erik, who she refers to as her dad, is still living. As a result, they have 5 generations of Rosengrens. They take good care of their dad.

Mrs. Rosengren states, "I take great pride in Mabry, telling anyone who is willing to listen just how great our school is, not just our test results but also our technology. Our staff is the best, willing to help out anyone at anytime. Our students are the best, for their eagerness to learn, and of course, our parents who pitch in at a moment’s notice to make Mabry the Super School it is."

Ms. Hansard

Ms. Hansard Ms. Deana Hansard is our In School Suspension teacher. She is also in charge of our morning Study Hall, which begins at 8:15AM this year. She is one of a few: she was born here in Marietta at Kennestone Hospital and remains in Cobb County today. She graduated from Sprayberry High School, a Lassiter rival. She earned her Bachelor's Degree at Kennesaw College in Middle Grades Education, with a major in Math and a minor in Language Arts (which her students will verify since she is consistent in helping them with their correct grammar).

Ms. Hansard is following in the footsteps of her grandmother, mother, 2 aunts and 1 uncle by entering the classroom. This is her 22nd year; her first 14 years were at Tapp Middle, and this is her 8th year as a Mabry Charger. Many years ago Ms. Hansard worked with Dr. Tyson at a different middle school in Cobb County for six years when he first became an administrator. Her dedication to the profession has been blessed, often, but being named to Who's Who Among America's Teachers three times by former students makes it even more rewarding.

Her spare time involves a love of football; as her classroom displays, she is an avid fan of the UGA "Dawgs." She, also, enjoys singing in the church choir, working in the yard and country music. [She went to SHS w/ Travis Tritt.] Ms. Hansard's free-time does not involve as much travel as she'd like, but when able, she "does it up well." In the last few years, she enjoyed a week in Hawaii and a cruise to Alaska, which evolved from the generosity of a former student who played professional football.

Her time at Mabry involves the Charger Club and assisting in fund-raising. In one fund-raiser, she was fortunate enough to "win" the opportunity to kiss Wilbur, a live pig! Her Math classes always bring in over 3,000 box tops each year; this, alone, helps our PTSA add over $300 to money they raise for our school.
