Mrs. Lynn Glass
My name is Lynn Glass, and I have been teaching since 1989. I began my career as a high school business education teacher with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business education from The University of Georgia. In 2010, I earned my specialist degree in curriculum and instruction. After teaching high school for nine years, I was blessed to be a full-time mom for the quickest eight years of my life. When I returned to teaching, I had added an ESOL endorsement to my certificate and later completed the gifted endorsement program. For seven years, I served English Language Learners at several elementary schools and both middle schools in Oconee County as an itinerant ESOL instructor. Malcom Bridge Middle School became my permanent home school in 2013 where I began teaching English Language Arts and World Studies while continuing to serve language learners in my classes through the ESOL innovative model. During the 2020-21 school year, I stepped back into the role of lead ESOL Teacher where I am serving language learners through the push-in, pull-out, and sheltered instruction models.
I have lived in Oconee County since I was 12 years old, and I am married to an Oconee native. We both graduated from Oconee County High School when Oconee County had only one elementary, one intermediate, and one high school! Perry and I have two wonderful daughters who graduated from NOHS, and yes, they tease us about being a house divided between Warrior blue and Titan red. Our oldest graduated from Berry College with degrees in elementary education and Spanish and is teaching at Yargo Elementary School in Barrow County, and our youngest graduated with her radiologic technologist degree from Athens Technical College and has begun her career with St. Mary's Health Care System. My greatest passion is spending time with my precious family in my roles as wife and mother. My love of learning and desire for teaching was inspired by my favorite teacher and mentor, who is honored in the Oconee County Teacher Hall of Fame, Mrs. Peggy Frantz. She encouraged me to believe in myself, have confidence, and become a lifelong learner. Because of her encouragement, I became a teacher, and I want to instill those same qualities in my students. An interesting fact I like for my students and their parents to know is that I do have an identical twin sister who also lives here in Oconee County. She is often mistaken for me, so if you think you encounter me in the community acting as if I don't recognize you, it's not me; it's my twin!
