    Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community,
     
    It is with great honor that I accepted the new position of Principal at Howard Middle School.  I began my career as a mathematics teacher and baseball coach in Athens, Georgia at Clarke Central High School.  After getting married, we moved to the Marietta area where I was mathematics teacher, baseball coach, and softball coach for a total of eight years.  At that point, I was "called" home to continue my career at Howard High School where I served as the mathematics department chair for four years while also continuing my coaching career as the head coach of the softball program for the first three of those years.  During that fourth year I worked hard with the district to invest in becoming a leader at the next level.  In the Fall of 2014, I was named Assistant Principal at Howard Middle School and spent the past three years serving in this capacity as part of a leadership team that worked continuously to improve the performance, growth, and opportunities for our students. 
     
    My personal history has strong ties to Macon.  My grandfather was born and raised in Middle Georgia and my dad was born and raised in Macon.  He elected to raise his family here as well.  As the oldest of three boys, we were all born and raised in Macon where we attended Rosa Taylor Elementary, Miller Middle School, and graduated from Central High School.  Upon graduation, I attended Furman University where I received a BS in Mathematics & Computer Science.  Knowing that I wanted to teach, I immediately enrolled at the University of Georgia where I earned an MEd in Mathematics Education.  As my career progressed, I was fortunate enough to continue my own education by studying at Lincoln Memorial University where I completed my specialist program with an EdS in Educational Leadership.  My wife, Katie, and I are proud parents of two wonderful children, Ellie and Griffin.  We, along with my parents, brothers, and their families all strive to make Middle Georgia a great place to live and work.
     
    As the new school year gets started in August (or July for the educators), I ask that each and every one of you is prepared to partner together to make Howard Middle School the best school in the entire Middle Georgia area.  Teamwork is necessary in order for us to continue moving in a positive direction so that the BCSD Vision (Each student demonstrates strength of character and is college or career ready) can come to fruition.  Personally, I am committed to doing all that I can to serve our students and lead our teachers so that each of us has a great experience.  We will be calling on parents and community members to be integral partners in the process of educating our students and supporting our staff.  Thank you in advance to everyone for being a willing participant in our efforts!
     
    It will be another great year at Howard Middle School,
    WHERE EVERY DAY AND EVERY STUDENT MATTER!
     
    Sincerely,
    Kevin Adams
