Ms. Kailah Guffey

     Welcome to 6th grade! This is my third year teaching at Cartersville Middle School, and I am beyond excited! I love math, and I have a passion for teaching it. As a teacher, I believe it is very important to make an impact in a student's life while giving them the tools to be successful in their academics. I am also the head coach for Competition Cheerleading, Football Cheerleading, and Basketball Cheerleading at CMS. GO CANES!

       I am currently engaged to my fiance, Kyle Dempsey. We both live in Cartersville and plan on getting married in 2023! I graduated from Adairsville High School in 2016. During my high school years, I spent some time working at the Boys and Girls Club in Cartersville! After high school, I attended The University of West Georgia, where I was an active member of the largest sorority in America, Chi Omega. I completed my Gifted Endorsement in 2021, and I completed my Masters degree in 2022. I am currently working on my Specialist degree and plan on graduating in the summer of 2023! 

      I think it is essential that my classroom feels like a community where everyone feels accepted, respected, and capable of achieving success. I am excited about this school year and getting to know all my students!
