Mrs. Brent Tuck grew up in the scenic mountains of North Carolina.  She attended the University of North Carolina for her undergraduate degree in Middle Grades Education as well as for her Masters in English Education.  She then attended Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, TN for her Specialist degree in Educational Administration.

 

Mrs. Tuck began her teaching career in 1990 in North Carolina.  She likes to tell the story of graduating college on a Sunday and starting a career as a first year teacher the very next day! After teaching in NC for three years, she married and relocated to Georgia where she taught in Fulton County.  After four years teaching middle grades social studies, language arts, and reading, she relocated to Ohio where she taught grade 8 reading for one year.  Missing the South, her family relocated back to the Athens area of Georgia where she taught for four years in Clarke County.  As the Athens area grew, her family desired the simple life that the North East Georgia Mountains could offer so they packed up their belongings and moved again to the lovely Habersham area where she now resides.  Mrs. Tuck has a passion for education and considers herself to be a life-long learner.  Many of her immediate family members have been career educators including both her mother and her grandmother.

 

She entered the field of education not only because it was a family trait but because of the help of a special 8th grade teacher, Mrs. Eloise Armstrong. "Her words of encouragement led me to where I am today... helping kids," states Mrs. Tuck.  "She pulled me aside for a character building pep talk one day which changed the direction of my future. If I can touch the life of one young person to that degree, then the investment of my time and effort has been worth it, " she remarks.   Mrs. Tuck loves working in the area of administration but claims that she misses the classroom as well.
