Jolaine Whitehead


I'm thrilled to be serving as a 5th grade STEAM teacher in my 16th year at Rocky Branch Elementary (with a 3 year break from 2015-2018). This school year marks my 26th year in education. I began my career teaching middle school and moved to elementary school after 5 years. I received both my Bachelor (1995) and Master (1998) degrees from the University of Georgia in Middle Grades Education. I earned my Specialist in Education (2005) from Peidmont College. I hold a math endorsement and gifted certification.

My greatest accomplishments are my children. Taylor (24), now a teacher herself; Logan (22), a college student; Anna (17), a senior at North Oconee; and Jordan (12), a seventh-grader at Malcom Bridge. All of my children are Rocky Branch alumni!
