2021-2022 HAMILTON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS bible history teachers

For the 2021-2022 academic year, 27 licensed and certified Bible History teachers, collectively holding 64 degrees, will teach Bible History in 29 participating schools. Bible program growth for the 2021-2022 school year includes:

(1) A new full-time program at Chattanooga Preparatory School; (2) An expansion of Central High School's Bible History program from a part-time to full-time program; (3) An expansion at Ivy Academy to now include both middle school and high school; and (4) An expansion at East Ridge Middle School from a part-time to full-time program. 

For the 2021-2022 academic year, community gifts through Bible in the Schools will fully fund 27 Bible History teachers, including Bible History District Facilitator, Ms. Patricia Cone. These licensed educators are strongly credentialed and collectively hold 64 degrees. Over one-third of the county's teachers hold an advanced degree in a Bible-related discipline.
