Mrs. Carla Thornton

Hello My Name Is...

Carla Thornton

Who am I?  
I'm married to my husband David for the past 26 years.  I’m mom to two children Christi Jones Conn (30) lives in Huntsville and Kyler Thornton (25) lives in Scant City (next door to me).  I’m Mawmaw to 4 grandchildren; Alex (11), Ariana (9), Taylar (5) and Joseph (born Nov.6, 2015).   I’m a daughter to the best mom, (Barbara) in the world; who also lives next door to me.   My hobbies are sewing and photography.  

This is my 13th year with the Marshall County School System.  I began many years ago when my children attended school at what was then Grassy Jr. High.  I was a stay at home mom and needed something to occupy my time so I began substitute teaching in 1998.  Brindlee Mountain Middle opened for the 2001-2002 school year and I worked as a sub there as well.  For a brief time a Teacher’s Aide was needed and I was hired full time.  I continued to substitute teach after the aide job and in 2003 I was hired as one of the custodians at Brindlee Mountain Middle School.  That was a tiring job, but I enjoyed every minute of it.  2004-2005 school year brought change to Brindlee Mountain.  Brindlee Mountain High School was in its first year and I took the position of Counselor’s Aide/Registrar.  I settled in to this position and stayed until July of 2015 when I transferred to my current position as Administrative Assistant/Data Manager in the IT Department at the Central Office.  

I am truly blessed beyond measure.
