Mrs. Amanda Tedford

My name is Amanda Tedford and I currently serve as assistant principal at Athens Middle School.  I am originally from Decatur, Alabama and am a 1996 graduate of Decatur High School.  I began my teaching career at Wheeler High School in Cobb County, Georgia where I taught high school social studies and coached varsity cheerleading.  After moving back to North Alabama in 2005 with my family, I served as preschool director at Lindsay Lane Baptist Church before coming back to full time teaching at Athens High School. At Athens High School I taught Government, Economics, US History, AP Psychology, and coached varsity cheerleading.  I then served as instructional partner at AHS where I was able to work with teachers daily supporting them in their teaching and learning.  I am a very passionate educator and love working with students each day as they grow as learners.  We have a phenomenal staff of leaders and teachers at AMS and I am looking forward to a great year!

I am married to Stace Tedford who is a teacher and the varsity boys basketball coach at Athens High School and we have two children.  I enjoy spending time with my family and love to spend time outdoors camping, hiking, and on the water.

Mrs. Kim Moore

It’s great to be a Golden Eagle! My name is Kim Moore, and I am from a small town called Stevenson, AL (Jackson County), which is located in the Northeastern part of the state. I serve as the Sixth Grade Administrator for Athens Middle School.  I have been employed with the Athens City School District since 2000. Working in the Athens City School District has been very rewarding. It is a close knit community that values education. It is truly a “community connected by education,” and I am blessed to be a part of it.

I am married to Minister Marcus Moore, and I have one son, Jaxson. My interests include spending time with family and friends, watching Roll Tide football and basketball, reading, and shopping.
