She attended college on a cross country/track and field scholarship at Georgia Southern University for two years and then graduated with honors from Reinhardt College in Waleska, GA. She still holds school athletic records at Cherokee High and Georgia Southern along with NAIA athletic honors and NAIA All-American Academic honors at Reinhardt. Since graduating with a BS in Education, she has earned her Masters and Specialist Degrees from Piedmont College. She began her teaching career in Cherokee County in July 2006. She has taught at Hasty ES, Knox ES, Johnston ES, and Bascomb ES. She is very excited to start her 11th year in education as a new Assistant Principal at Carmel ES.
Ms. Peppers is married to Billy Peppers, the current City Manager for the City of Canton, and they have two sons, Turner (starting Kindergarten at Carmel) and Jennings (3 years old). In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, watching Reinhardt University football (where her father coaches), working in her yard, photography, and running.
Ms. Peppers appreciates the warm, friendly reception from Carmel’s staff, students and parents and she believes this is going to be a fantastic school year! Go Colts!
