This week’s spotlight shines on Mrs. Corbin. She is actually not “new” because she ended the last year with us at GHS. We asked her a couple questions so we can get to know her better.
Q: Where did you go to school for your teaching degree?
A: Athens State University.
Q: When did you realize you wanted to be a teacher?
A: I had a wonderful math teacher in high school who helped me understand the terms and procedures. High school activities and sports were a big part of my high school adventure, and I like to see that continuing through each generation. This along with a new exciting day every day is what drew my attention to teaching.
Q: How long have you been teaching?
A: This is my first full year teaching.
Q: What made you want to teach in Guntersville?
A: The teacher support and atmosphere of the school is why I wanted to teach here at Guntersville. Through my educational experience, I visited many schools and Guntersville was by far one of my favorites.
Q: Do you have any advice for the student body?
A: My advice to all students is to take your education seriously. We are in a world where high school diplomas are required for most jobs and it helps to have additional knowledge when completing applications. Make yourself the best candidate for the position that you want by building a sturdy educational and moral foundation.
We are very excited to have Mrs. Corbin as part of the teaching staff here at Guntersville, and we know this will be the best year yet.

Zak even stated, “I even showed up everyday to practice during the summer ready to go just to prepare myself for this season.”
Head football coach Lance Reese is excited for this upcoming season! Coach Reese said, “One goal for this season is to try and reach our full potential as a team. Our second goal is for the team to remain focused and improve each week. If we can do that, the wins will take care of themselves.”
Coach Reese also said, “Football is a unique game in which each position has different responsibilities to take care of. All eleven people must do their job in order for a play to be successful.” Come out and support your GHS Wildcats under the "Friday Night Lights."

The varsity volleyball coach, Jimmy Latta, has said his team’s goals for this season include “competing for a state championship, defending past county championships (2017-2019,) and winning the area championship!”
He also stated that the most important thing he wants to do is “develop his players into great teammates, leaders and also equip them with tools to be successful outside of volleyball.”
We are so excited for this year 2019-2020 season for both football and volleyball! Both teams will do great! GO wildcats!!
