Mr. Scott Tierce

My name is Scott Tierce, and I am proud to be a Cartersville Purple Hurricane. I grew up in Marietta, but my family has deep ties to Cartersville because so many of us were born and raised in the Cartersville community. I received my bachelor’s degree, secondary English education, from Kennesaw State University, and I received my Masters of Science degree in Reading and Literacy from NOVA Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I am certified to teach grades 6-12, and I spent seventeen years teaching all four grade levels at the high school level, including co-taught English, regular education English, and honors level English courses, and I am now in my second year at the middle school level, teaching 8th grade literature on all three levels. I am also certified in special education curriculum pre-k through 12th grade.

As a teacher, my focus is to build supportive relationships with every one of my students to support their individual needs. My intentions in the classroom are quite simple, read, discuss, write. However, my methods are deceptively purposeful in helping students develop and access skills beyond their current levels, regardless of their academic standings.

Personally, I have been married to my extremely supportive and understanding wife, Mrs. Shelley Tierce, for 23 years, and we have two boys, Zachary and Henry, both graduates of Cartersville High School, who both are now attending Kennesaw State University. I can honestly say my family is my life and my rock. I love them all dearly.

I look forward to expanding my family here at Cartersville Middle School as I help to teach and support each of my students as if they are my own children.
