Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Booth, Principal
Mrs. Rhonda Booth is entering her 25th year as an educator, and she is honored to be serving her second year as Mt. Carmel principal. Before being an assistant principal, she held transitional roles that prepared her to be an instructional leader. Previously Mrs. Booth served as regional support staff for the State Department of Education's Alabama Reading Initiative. Before that she was a school-based literacy coach. These were important opportunities for her to step outside the classroom and develop a broader view of how schools and districts plan for effective teaching and learning.
Mrs. Booth was a Language Arts classroom teacher for 18 years. However, she did not start out in education. Mrs. Booth majored in Radio-Television-Film at the University of North Alabama and worked in radio and TV news before going back to college to become a teacher. She knows that switching careers was certainly the right decision for her.
Mrs. Booth continues to be a learner as she is pursuing her doctorate degree in educational leadership at Samford University. She wants to continue learning about how to move our students forward in achievement and what role she can play as an educator to improve our students' futures.
On a personal note, Mrs. Booth is married to an educational leader. Her husband is a former principal who is now a director in another district. She also has two sons.
