My name is Kelly Hightower, and I teach 7th grade Lit/Comp. on team 7A. The 2021-2022 school year is my eighth year teaching at E.T. Booth Middle School.
I grew up in Marietta, Georgia where I attended and graduated from Lassiter High School. I then graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor's degree in Child and Family Development in 2012. After that, I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education in 2014, and I then graduated with a Master of Education from KSU in May of 2019. During the Summer of 2020, I finished my education by graduating with an Education Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College.
Writing is one of my passions, so I really enjoy helping my students improve their own writing skills and express their creativity through different genres of writing. I am looking forward to another great school year!
