Principal's Message

 I would like to say it is a privilege to serve as principal at Ruhama Junior High School.  All teachers and staff have the unbelievable opportunity to serve the amazing students of our little section of Lookout Mountain.  Our teachers strive hard everyday to create a positive culture and prepare our students for their high school experience.


 For those who don’t know me, I am an alumnus of Plainview High School (1997).  After high school I went on to receive my Bachelors of History Education from Jacksonville University (2001).  During the years after I received my degree, I taught history and special education at Collinsville, Plainview, and Fyffe (2002-2013).  


 In 2004 I received a Master of Science in Educational Administration, and in 2006 I received an Educational Specialist Degree in Special Education.  During the 2013-2014 school year I became an assistant principal at Crossville Middle School. I worked there four years under the leadership of Dewey DeBoard.  At the beginning of the 2018-2019 school, I was hired as principal of Ruhama Junior High School.


 If I can ever be of service to you or your student(s), please do not hesitate to contact me at astimmons@dekalbk12.org or 256-845-3377.  Thank you for entrusting us at Ruhama Junior High School with your most precious possessions!
