My name is Amy Garner, and I am thrilled to be teaching math at ET Booth this year. Originally from Oregon City, Oregon, I moved to Georgia at eight years old, and attended Cobb County schools through high school. I subsequently earned a bachelor of science degree in Middle Grades Education from Kennesaw State University, and a master of arts degree in Middle Grades Mathematics Education from Piedmont College. My entire teaching career has been focused on working with the families and students at ET Booth. Now beginning my 17th year as an educator, all of which have been in either 7th or 8th grade math, I look forward to helping a new group of students become more confident in their math understanding and abilities.
I currently teach math 8, as well as both the Accelerated Algebra I/Geometry A and the Honors Algebra I high school credit classes. In addition, I am the chair of the math department. In previous years, I have served as team leader, represented math on the original ET Booth data management committee, participated in both the AdvancEd accreditation committee and the district ESOL audit, and represented ET Booth during the most recent math textbook adoption process.
My husband, who also works in the district, and I have a daughter and two sons. Our two older children have attended schools in the Etowah zone for the past 8 years, and their younger brother will join in that tradition when they begin high school, middle school, and kindergarten respectively in the fall of 2018.
Should a situation arise with which I can be of assistance, please contact me via email at email@example.com.
