Principal's Corner

Hello Parents and Students

Image for Hello Parents and Students

Hello CMS Students, Parents, and Guardians, 

I would like to thank everyone for a fantastic school year last year. I look forward to an exciting upcoming year. We have provided Chromebooks for students to use in classes. Teachers are now using Google Classroom to provide instruction and implement technology in the class. Students have textbooks that can be accessed online or checked out from teachers. Our school provides Project Lead the Way classes for students in grades 7 and 8. We have a band and choir program at CMS. I would like for students to be involved in athletics, Beta Club, Scholars Bowl, Band, Choir, or any other opportunities to show their talents. Please communicate with our teachers and administration when you have a concern about your child or any upcoming events. 

This school year will serve as my 17th year as an educator. My career began 2002 at Billingsley School as a first grade teacher. I later accepted a position as a kindergarten teacher at Clanton Elementary School. I  taught first grade at Clanton Middle School until 2012. In 2012, I moved to Clanton Middle School as a sixth grade teacher. In 2013, I became assistant principal at Clanton Middle until I was selected as principal of Verbena in 2016. This will be my third year as principal of Clanton Middle School. 

I am a Chilton County High School graduate. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from the University of Alabama-Birmingham in 2002. I received a Master’s of Science degree in Elementary Education from Alabama State University in 2005. I attended Auburn University- Montgomery and received my certificate in Educational Administration. I received my Educational Specialist degree in Instructional Leadership from the University of Montevallo in 2009. I am currently working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Walden University. 

I anticipate us having a phenomenal year of teaching and learning at CMS. At any point, you have a question or concern, please contact the school office or send me an email. Please check back frequently to see updates and join our school Remind group for important dates and information. 

 

 


Sincerely,

Carla White
