Ms. Opal South

The 2019-20 school year will mark my third at HTMS, and I'm excited to be returning to teach 7th Grade English Language Arts! I have worked in education since 2004 in both the private and public school realms, in the classroom and in administration. I have led Creative Writing workshops for faculty and middle school students, and I earned my MFA in Children's Literature from Hollins University in 2012. I graduated from UAB in May of 2017 with my Masters in Education, Secondary School English Language Arts.

I started HTMS's current recycling program during my first year here, and I'm looking forward to continuing as The Recycling Club sponsor in 2019-20. This year I will also be the Debate Club Coach. Go Huskies!

  • I use Google Classroom for all class announcements and assignments. I use Remind for homework reminders throughout the year. Students and parents will receive codes to join these platforms at the beginning of the year.
