In the May 24 election, Johns Creek and Alpharetta voters will choose between Kimberly Ware and Kristin McCabe for the District 5 school board seat. The incumbent, Linda McCain, is not seeking re-election.
Profile: Tell readers a little about yourself.
Ware: I am a Johns Creek mom who has been volunteering in our schools through my family's journey through Shakerag Elementary, River Trail Middle and Northview High. My daughter graduated from Northview in 2020 and my son is currently a junior there.
McCabe: I have been a resident of Johns Creek for the past 18 years. I earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of South Florida. My husband Dan and I have been active community members. He was a founding Johns Creek City Council member, and I've been engaged with Fulton County Schools for the past 15 years supporting our two daughters’ educational journey.
Question 1: What do you see as the greatest challenge to public school education? And what would be your plan(s) to address that issue?
Ware: Currently, public schools focus on the student's ability to learn content specific topics and skills in a fixed amount of time.
This produces graduates who can't advocate for themselves, don't know their own strengths and are not able to think critically. A way to address this would be to focus on whole child learning in which children are immersed in learning environments that foster a sense of community and encourage problem solving, goal setting, creativity, autonomy and self-accountability. This approach will help students develop a sense of belonging, an understanding of self and an awareness of their place in the world.
McCabe: The greatest challenge facing public school education is the significant learning loss that has occurred over the past two years during the pandemic and recovering that loss with the students.
We currently have more than half of third grade students that are not reading at grade level. With regards to math, many of our students are not performing at grade level. It is time to focus on the foundations of education. We need to put our energy and resources into strategies we know work. This is not time for fads.
What the pandemic has done to our Fulton County students and students across the nation with regards to their social and developmental perspective is unknown. It is time to prioritize face-to-face instruction in a welcoming environment. We need common sense education for our students.
We need baseline testing to determine the student’s current skill and knowledge levels. Based on those findings we need to implement targeted interventions such as small group instruction, extended learning, expanded learning and tutoring with measurable results.
Question 2: Fulton County taxpayers contribute nearly 60 cents of every dollar spent by the Fulton County School System. That number is expected to increase in the next five years, despite declining enrollment systemwide. Do you believe the Fulton County School System has been a good financial steward of its revenue, and what, if any, actions would you take as a board member to improve financial efficiency?
Ware: Fulton County Schools has been a good financial steward of revenue. It has been hard at times for parents to see the value of big expenditures. One example of this is iReady, an adaptive online learning platform. As a board member, I would work to communicate why FCS invests funds in new (and existing) programs.
McCabe: I believe FCS has been a responsible fiduciary with our tax dollars as they have maintained one of the lowest millage rates in the metro area while remaining debt free. I do believe there is always room for improvement and as a new board member I would request an analysis of all our training and educational platforms to determine their cost effectiveness. I believe ineffective platforms should be discontinued which may result in cost savings.
Question 3: Politics are increasingly entering the classroom through legislation and external conversations. Do you believe there is a place for political debate on social issues in the classroom? Why or why not?
Ware: I feel classrooms should be safe spaces for students to grapple with all of the current issues of the day. Politics is definitely a current issue. Students deserve teachers who can remain neutral while ensuring the discussion remains age appropriate, and empathy, collaboration and critical thinking are practiced.
McCabe: As for politics in the classroom, at the elementary level I do not believe there is a need for political debate on social issues. At this age, students need to focus on the basic educational standards. As for middle and high school age students, I am for age-appropriate classroom discussion on social issues given they meet the educational standards. I believe these discussions should take place in the applicable class such as history or U.S. Government. Additionally, if classroom discussions do occur, I support and encourage all sides of the issue be presented and discussed neutrally.

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — The City of Johns Creek’s biggest annual event is returning to Heisman Field April 30.
Johns Creek International Festival, first launched in 2018, will feature roughly 80 food and retail vendors and performers from all over the world.
Gates open at 11 a.m. with performances set to begin at 11:30 a.m., External Communications Manager Edie Damann said.
The festival will run all day, shutting down at 7 p.m.
Damann said the event should be slightly larger than the city’s most recent International Festival hosted in October, which brought in about 18,000 visitors.
She said that some of the event’s typical vendors were not ready to attend a large-scale event in October due to the spread of COVID-19, but many are set to return April 30.
“They are open for business, and they are excited to be coming back for festivals, to see people and talk to people and show off their products or services,” Damann said.
Just as in years past, the Johns Creek Arts Center will be on site with their kids zone tent, featuring 10-15 different crafts for children of all ages to complete. Each craft is carefully curated by the Arts Center and displays a different culture from around the world.
Also in attendance will be representatives from the Johns Creek Cricket Association. Shafiq Jadavji, the association’s president, will also be serving as one of the celebration’s three emcees. Jadavji has been a participant and supporter of the International Festival since its inception in 2018. He was a member of the class of Leadership Johns Creek that helped launch the now annual spring event.
“The reason why this festival is important is it allows us to celebrate the diversity of our city and surrounding cities,” Jadavji said. “In my view, this is one of those kinds of events where it makes the city and citizens very proud to not only host this event but also partake in the event.”
Preparations for this year’s International Festival began just two weeks after last year’s event ended, Damann said.
Historically, the event is held in the spring, but it was postponed until fall last year due to high COVID-19 spread. This year, it is returning to its regular schedule leaving a tighter turnaround for city staff.
Before the big day, city staff will have access to Heisman Field, directly across from the Atlanta Athletic Club, for a week of final preparations including tent marking and placement, stage installation and sound and lighting hookups, Damann said.
“We have people from almost every department involved in the production of this event,” Damann said. “It’s all hands on deck.”
In addition to the boots on the ground, staff at City Hall will serve as the people behind the curtain, managing traffic flow for the event from the city’s traffic control room, Damann said.
Communications Director Bob Mullen said visitors should expect the same magic as years prior, but with new additions.
“It’s all your old favorites plus, perhaps some new vendors as well,” Mullen said.
The city is still seeking additional volunteers to help put on International Festival. Those interested can find more information at johnscreekga.gov.

Pizza really is just an open-faced hot sandwich on flatbread, and sandwiches can be loaded with anything. International city that it is, Atlanta is home to pizza topped with Indian chicken 65, Mexican birria and Korean marinated steak. Here are some treatments that’ll make tried-and-true pepperoni seem like a plain Jane.
Rice N’ Pie
The husband-and-wife team of Gopala and Sirisha Kurra bakes pies that are the equivalent of a visit to an Indian spice market. That said, the Kurras are nothing if not cosmopolitan — at their restaurant, you’ll find jerk-chicken pizza with prickly scotch bonnets, Thai pizza with green chiles and cilantro, and Korean barbecue chicken, along with tikka, masala, green chile and butter (as in butter chicken) toppings.
As a fan of fiery chicken 65, I had to try it on pizza, and I’m so glad I did. I chose fresh jalapeño and cilantro as my two additional complimentary toppings, and loved how the oven blast gave the chicken just a bit more char. The Kurras describe their pizzas as Detroit-style; indeed, the rectangular pies are thick, chewy, cheesy and just a little fricoed at the edge.
Also quite good was the chatpata chat pie. A unique creation that riffs on the savory Indian street snack known as chat, it’s topped with potato, bell pepper, onion, green chutney, tamarind chutney, fresh cilantro and the crunchy, ramen-like dry noodles known as sev. It’s all dusted, of course, with chat masala.
3980 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Berkeley Lake. 770-302-0320, ricenpie.com
Birria, the traditional Mexican stew of goat, and sometimes beef, is a noticeable taco trend. At this casual spot, you can get a brick-oven pizza with beef birria meat and a cup of consommé for dipping. A medium pie, large enough to feed three people, is $26.
Pizza Chelas also serves pizza topped with asada, al pastor, pollo and chorizo. It’s the kind of easygoing spot where friends gather over beer, micheladas and pizza for Saturday afternoons that seem to go on for days.
3907 Burns Road NW, Lilburn. 678-696-9817, instagram.com/pizzachelas
Joy Pizza N Joy Chicken
Think of it as a Korean fried chicken and beer shop, with pizza. Along with the usual Hawaiian, pepperoni, cheese and so forth, there are pies with decidedly Korean twists — Korean beef, potato and sweet potato with mousse in the crust. If potato pizza sounds a little lackluster, know that it’s also topped with green pepper, corn, ham and pineapple.
Another one that caught our eye was snowing shrimp pizza, adorned with cooked shrimp, flaky crabmeat, sliced smoked ham, pineapple, onion, black olive and Parmesan. Puffed up with brown chewy edges, it was tasty, loads of fun, and certainly made me want to try more Korean-style pies.
While you can get fried chicken and pizza combos, what’s not on the menu is pizza topped with Korean fried chicken, and I think a pie with popcorn chicken would be the best of both worlds. But, who cares what I think? The server laughed when I asked about such a possibility.
10820 Abbotts Bridge Road, Johns Creek. 770-813-8882, talech.com/biz/ordering/889126/JOY-PIZZA-N-JOY-CHICKEN-JOHNS-CREEK-GA#/menu
Also keep in mind:
Tandoori Pizza & Wing Co.
A spinoff of Archna Becker’s Bhojanic, the casual Colony Square restaurant offers 10-inch naan-bread pizzas with such toppings as chicken tikka and turkey sausage kabobs.
Green tomato, bacon jam, fried Vidalia petals: A national chain it may be, but Emmy has taken care to customize some of its white, Detroit-style pies with Southern flair. There’s also a cheeseburger pie and Korean chicken with buttermilk blue and radishes.
