Mr. Jay Johnson

Hello!!!  Welcome to Cartersville Middle School.  I hope that you are as happy and proud as I am to be a CANE!!!  I am entering my 27th year teaching.  I have worked at East Paulding High School, Marietta High School, Chapel Hill High School, Rockmart High School, Herschel Jones Middle School, Shelton Elementary and PB Ritch Middle School.  I have coached Football, Boys and Girls Basketball, Track, Baseball and even as a substitute Cheer Sponsor.  I have been married to my awesome wife Dawn, for 23 years.  We have two children.  Hannah, 21, is a 4th year Animal Science major at UGA and Ryan, 15, is a Sophomore at Cartersville High School.  We also have two dogs, Charlie, a mutt, and Dooley, and English Bulldog.  I will be coaching 8th grade football for CMS.  In my spare time, I enjoy watching Ryan play sports, binge watching Netflix with Hannah, going out on dates with Dawn and spending time on the family property in Hancock and Taliaferro Counties.  I am humbled to be a part of the CCSS family and look forward to getting to know all of my students and their support system.  PLEASE email or call me if you need ANYTHING!!!  It's going to be a great year.  #ifyouloveitsaycanes!
