Hello there!

My name is Heidi Hammons Kerley. I am OLD! In 1989, I graduated from Johnson County High School. I have a bachelor of science degree in psychology as well as a master in the art of teaching (M.A.T.) degree both from East Tennessee State University. Once upon a time, I taught sixth and third grades in Johnson County and second grade in Greene County, TN. My certification allows me to teach pre-k, k-8th grades, and high school English. I have taught 9th grade English at Gilmer High School in North GA and at Claxton High School in South GA. Talent Search adviser and Graduation Coach are also titles I have held over the years.  Mr. Don Kerley (twin brother of Tom) who also teaches at JCHS is my husband and we have one handsome son, Samuel. It is a blessing to our family to finally be back home in Johnson County and I am excited to be part of the ninth grade journey at JCHS!
