Dr. Emma James

     I am so excited about this new school year!  This is my 23rd year teaching at CES. These years have been divided amongst third, fourth, and now Special Education all at Cartersville Elementary School. I am a proud honor graduate of Cartersville High School (1996). I received my undergraduate degree from LaGrange College, my master's degree from Piedmont College, and my Ed.S. and EdD from Lincoln Memorial University. I have been married for 19 years to Justin James. My husband and I are the proud parents of Hayleigh (27), who is a teacher in Cherokee County, Hunter (24) who is a student at Georgia Highlands, and our youngest, Hayden (17) who is a junior at Cartersville High School. We have one dog, Bentley, who is VERY spoiled!  I have a passion for singing and reading. As a family, we enjoy traveling, baseball, and drag racing! 

    This year, I will be working with fifth grade. I am very excited about this year and the relationships I will make with the students. Instructional content can be accessed via Schoology.  Please communicate with me if you have any questions! This will be an awesome year filled with academic growth and establishing strong relationships among our school community.
