Mrs. Bess Carter

My name is Bess Carter and I am currently in my 16th year of teaching art. I began my career in Morgan County where I taught art at Morgan County Primary for nine years. I moved to High Shoals Elementary upon it’s opening in 2009 and I am currently still employed there. High Shoals is a fantastic place to work!  I received my degree in Art Education in 2000 from the University of Georgia.


I am also a wife to Keith and mother to four children. They are all currently enrolled in Oconee County Schools. Their ages are 14, 12, 9, and 6. We love being Oconee residents and have a vested interest in the success our awesome school system.
