Mrs. Lori Michelle Thaxton


Polk County College and Career Academy 

My Educational Philosophy 

Every child has the ability to bring something unique and special to the classroom. My job as an educator is to help each child develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. I will assist my students with discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions as well as nurture their ideas. It is my desire as an educator to help students grow to their fullest potential. 

     I am from Rome, Georgia and a graduate of Coosa High School. I graduated with an Associate Degree in Business from Shorter College and received my BS Degree in Business Management from Covenant College.  In the  Spring of 2017, I graduated with my masters from the University of Alabama.  ROLL TIDE!

    I have had the privilege of teaching for Polk School District for eleven years. During this time I have taught at Eastside Elementary, Rockmart Middle School, and for the Polk County College and Career Academy. 

   I am married to Charles Thaxton and have two sons. My oldest son, Zachary, has returned to college to pursue a music education degree. My youngest son, Aubrey, just finished training for Electrical Lineman at North Georgia Technical College.
