Devon Lineberry-Jennings

My name is Ms. Devon Lineberry-Jennings, but I prefer Ms. LJ, since my last names are so long (thanks, parents!) I was born in Galax and raised in Carroll County, but don't worry, I'll be sure to be loyal to the Tide at all future sporting events. I graduated from CCHS, and attended Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia, where I received by B.A. in English and my license to teach grades 6-12. Previously, I taught 8th grade reading and writing for Henry County Public Schools for two years. As much as I loved my students there, I missed my mountains and my family. I was thrilled to accept a position at GHS as the new 8th grade reading teacher in 2018. I absolutely love to teach, and I want each and every one of my students to succeed. My goal is to make sure that every student enjoys the process of learning, and I hope to bring literature to life and encourage students to engage in the joy of reading. In my spare time, I like to spend time at the river, hike, garden, laugh, read, and wish for snow... because winter is my favorite season! I know this is where I am meant to be, and I am so excited to be HOME! Roll Tide!
