Glenda Carter

Hello Owl Family! 

My name is Glenda Carter. This is my twenty-third year with City Schools of Decatur and my sixteenth year working with kindergartners. I started with the school system as a Westchester “Wildcat” for five years. Then, I flew over to become an "Oakhurst Owl". I have a love for students, and I am a strong believer in “They don’t always remember what you teach them, but they’ll never forget how you treat them.” I am a native of South Carolina, the real peach state of the country. I come from a long line of educators who taught me not to fear hard work and sacrifice. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Office Administration at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina. My greatest claim to fame is my husband, three daughters, granddaughter and grandson. They, along with my faith, are my renewal after a long day with the students. I have two children who were educated in the Decatur School System, and now they are educators themselves.  I enjoy sewing, gardening and traveling with my family. I am looking forward to a great year with a group of wise owls, “Kindergartners”.
