Dr. Penny Knox

Hello!  My name is Dr. Penny Knox and I am a 6th grade English/Language Arts co-teacher at Malcolm Bridge Middle School. This is my 27th year teaching in secondary education.  My bachelors degree is in foreign language education and I started my teaching career as a high school French teacher.  In 2003, I transitioned to special education as an 8th grade ELA/Math co-teacher at Pierce County Middle School.  I later moved into the self-contained classroom teaching students with mild/moderate intellecutal disabilities and autism.  During my tenure in Pierce County, I received my Reading Specialist, ESOL and Instructional Supervisor endorsements, along with my certification in Educational Leadership.  I have also served on the Georgia Alternate Assessment Rangefinding Committee with the Georgia Department of Education.  In 2019, I returned to the co-teaching setting at MBMS.  I love having the opportunity to offer reading & writing support to 6th graders!  I am an avid traveler who enjoys traveling to the mountains, hiking, bird-watching, gardening, music and attending UGA sporting events with my family.
