My name is Jonathan Thomas and I am the Assistant Principal at Rockmart Middle School. Prior to this year, I was the Assistant Principal at Van Wert Elementary School. In addition, my teaching experience has included being a high school weight lifting instructor at Rockmart High School, middle school alternative school teacher at Rockmart Middle School, and high school public safety teacher at Woodstock High School. I have a Bachelors Degree from Reinhardt University, a Masters Degree from Georgia Southern University and I am currently working to complete my Educational Specialist Degree from Columbus State University. This is my third year with Polk School District and seventeenth year working in education. I have worked in Cherokee County School District and Cartersville City Schools as well. Before going into education, I was in law enforcement, working in many roles including School Resource Officer.
In addition to my position at RMS, I am also the Assistant Head Football Coach at Rockmart High School where I coach Running Backs. My wife, Katherine, also works in the district, and we have four children, Emily, Hannah, Logan and Reed, and two grandchildren, Jordan and Jace. I look forward to getting to know each of you more throughout the year. Should you have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
