My name is Tammy Carroll-Marcum. I have taught at Jackson County Middle School for 23 years. I have actually been in the same room that entire time. I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grades and a variety of subjects. I am primarily an English composition teacher. I believe an organized highly structured classroom is the most effective environment for learning. One of my classroom mottos is, "Manners are free." I am a new learner when creating a website and blog, so I ask for your patience.
