Pounce into Learning

This is  Union County Middle School, home of the Panthers and located in the small town of Blairsville, GA. This school system consists of six schools, five of which are all centrally located on the same campus in downtown Blairsville. The city itself is small in layout, but is very vast in the amount of heritage and Appalachian culture that reside here. Union County itself is made up of only Blairsville and the unincorporated community of Suches, which lies on the county line with neighboring Fannin County.

Hello, my name is Stephanie Flood and I am in the Special Education Graduate Program at Valdosta State University. I am currently working in Physical Education and planning to spend my career-life being a teacher. Aside from my career interests I love spending time outdoors playing with my daughter. Living in a small country town has changed us from “city girls” to “country girls” because we love to be around horses and farm animals. In the future we plan to have our own farm and two of each kind of animal we desire.

My classes include students from grades 6th, 7th, and 8th and in my classes we teach Physical Education and Health. On the Physical Education side we have three classes per week, two of which we spend playing organized sports or doing some kind of physical activity and one class where we spend running and doing cardiovascular exercises. For Health, we have two classes per week and spend time lecturing, reading, taking notes and playing games to teach the students the importance of being in good health for the entirety of their lives.
