Mrs. Gina Bishop
Ooltewah,Tennessee is my hometown, but Cartersville, Georgia is the place I choose to fulfill my dream as an educator. This is my 30th year in education with 20 of those years being in the Cartersville City School System. 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.
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. This is his first year as a third grade teacher at Adairsville Elementary School. He also coaches football, with his dad, at Adairsville High School and baseball at Adairsville Middle School. Brooke is in her second year of college and attends Georgia Highlands College. She is pursuing a degree in Elementary Educaiton as well. When I have spare time, I enjoy watching college football (Go Vols), 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
