Assistant Principal of Instruction

My name is Amy Thaxton, and I am in my 13th year at Bob Jones.  I am in my third year as Assistant Principal of Instruction.  I have the opportunity to partner with some amazing teachers on best classroom practices to impact student achievement.  I am a proud 1999 graduate. My experiences at Bob Jones as a student were very positive and helped to prepare me for the future.  I am so excited to be a part of a wonderful staff that strives for excellence in education, while motivating students to always do their best in any situation, whether in school or in life. 

 

I take great pride in Bob Jones academically, as well as its athletic programs.

Go Patriots!!!
