My Career:

Ooltewah,Tennessee is my hometown, but Cartersville, Georgia is the place I choose to fulfill my dream as an educator. I began my career teaching 6th Grade at South Central Middle School in Bartow County and then moved to Pine Log Elementary where I taught 5th grade and 1st Grade.  While teaching in Bartow County, I received the Bartow County Teacher of the Year.  In 2000, I moved to Cartersville Primary School to teach First Grade and now have the honor of being the Cartersville Primary School Principal.

My Family:

I am married to Eric Bishop, head football coach at Adairsville High School, and we have two children Blaine and Brooke.  Blaine graduated from Georgia Southern University with a BS in Elementary Education Degree in May of 2019. He is now a third grade teacher at Adairsville Elementary School. He also coaches football, with his dad, at Adairsville High School and baseball as well. Brooke attends Kennesaw State University and is pursuing a degree in Elementary Educaiton. She is completing her student teaching this year. When I have spare time, I enjoy watching college football (Go Vols), hiking, visiting my family in Tennessee, shopping, and going to the beach with my family.

My hope for the future is to make a difference in the lives of those in my path. #ourheartisinit
