This 2017-2018 school year has begun with some new teachers, one of them being Dr. Tonya Childress our new Vice Principal. Last year Mr. Hobby was the school’s vice-principal, but he was offered to be the principal at Woodland Elementary. Dr. Childress comes to us  from Harden Valley Academy in Knox County. Although she has worked at several other high schools, she has only taught one other middle school which was only 6th-8th grade.

This year comes new challenges: 5th graders, an age group she has never taught before. Dr. Childress works so well with kids because she has her own. She has two sons and other stepchildren as well.

She has always wanted to go into education ever since one of our own teachers, STEM teacher Todd Livesay, brought an interest to her when she was his student.

Not only does she want to be a part of administration, she wants to be a part of her student’s lives. “I hope I can stay here for a while,” says Dr. Childress.
