Mrs. Tiffany Lightning

Hi! I am Tiffany Lightning, and I am super excited about another school year full of fun and lots of learning. I have lived in Cartersville all my life, and I attended Cartersville City Schools. I am blessed to have the chance to teach in the same school system that instilled such wonderful values in me, and I look forward to instilling those values into the students I meet each day!  

I received my bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Kennesaw State University. I received my master’s degree from Piedmont College in curriculum and instruction and my specialist degree in teacher leadership, also from Piedmont College. 

This is my 18th year of teaching at Cartersville City Schools. I have taught pre-k, 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade. Four years ago, I transitioned into a Reading EIP position, and this year I will be working with 3rd grade students! I have a passion for reading and helping all children reach their potential! I hold high expectations for all my students as well as myself. My objective is to create an environment in which all students feel safe, confident, and inspired to learn daily. My desire is for my students to enjoy learning, be curious, and take risks that will make them lifelong learners. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your students this year!
