Rodney Martin Principal
Hello! My name is Rodney Martin and I will serve as Principal at PHS this school year. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from North Georgia College and a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from Piedmont College. I am currently pursuing a Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Piedmont College. I hold certifications in secondary biology, secondary broad field science, gifted education, advanced placement, and middle grades math, science, ELA, and social studies.
I have been in education for the last 24 years. I taught 8th grade earth science at South Forsyth Middle School for two years. I then taught chemistry, health, and physical science at North Forsyth High School. While at North Forsyth I coached football and sponsored our Mock Trial team. I then taught chemistry, physical science, earth science, environmental science, astronomy, and anatomy at South Forsyth High School for several years. I came to Pickens High 13 years ago and have found a home. Here at PHS I have taught chemistry, physics, AP chemistry, AP environmental science, physical science, and forensic science. I also served as the science department chair for 8 years. I had the pleasure of serving as Instructional Lead Strategist at PHS for one year and moved into administration last year.
I am excited to begin this new school year! I look forward to working with teachers, students, and administrators to make this year the best ever. This is a special place filled with special people and I am glad to be a part of it.
