New Teacher Spotlight: Kody Waldrop

(Franklin) — The Heard County school system is releasing a personal bio for several new faculty members who will begin teaching at Heard County for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.

The second in this series comes from new civics teacher at HCHS, Kody Waldrop.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more personal bios from other new faculty members.

I was born and raised in Roanoke and attended Randolph County High School.

My wife Morgan and I have two daughters Leah who is two and Caroline who is seven months old. I attended Southern Union and then transferred to the University of West Georgia where I majored in history and secondary education.

While at UWG I was a student assistant with the football program and worked in many capacities. My first teaching job was at my Randolph County where I taught 7th and 8th grade social studies and was an assistant football coach.

In 2014 started at Long Cane Middle School in LaGrange where I have taught 6th grade Earth Science for three years. At LCMS I also coached football and basketball.

I am very excited to come to Heard County and be a part of such an involved and committed community.

I am also excited for the opportunity to teach Civics again, a subject which I believe is very important to the development of our young people.

It is very important for our young people to have a solid understanding of how our government functions and their role as citizens and future voters.

I am very thankful for this amazing opportunity and cannot wait to get started at HCHS. Go Braves!
