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.
