Mr. Phillip Jarmon

I am married to my wonderful wife Heather, and we have two girls - Chyanne (8)  and Cameron (7). We also love English Bulldogs and have one named Gus.  I was born and raised in Guntersville, AL. I enjoy teaching Sunday School, attending church activities, learning new things, and anything outdoors. I consider it an honor to assume a leadership role within the Athens City School district. With that being said, I understand the high expectations placed on character development and student achievement and will continue to strive for excellence. We teach the whole child, and as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Intelligence plus character is the goal of true education."
