Congratulations to Mrs. Cinda Skelton who was recently selected by her colleagues to represent Mt. Zion High School as the 2018 Teacher of the Year.


Mrs. Skelton has been an educator for 34 years serving in a variety of roles from teacher, to academic coach, to assistant principal. A native of Carroll County, she began her career in Coweta County and has since taught in eight different school systems and three colleges and universities. Having taught in Texas, Japan, North Carolina, and Georgia, she spent the past 18 years in Gwinnett County. After 31 years of being away, she returned to Carroll County last year  and rediscovered her passion for teaching at Mt. Zion High School where she currently teaches 9th and 10th grade English, creative writing, and serves as the literacy coach. A 1980 graduate of Bowdon High School, she received her B.A. in English from the University of West Georgia, her M.A.T. from Kaplan University, and her Ed.S from Piedmont College. She loves working with the students and families of the Mt. Zion community and being a part of such a successful school and amazing faculty.

Mrs. Skelton resides in Carrollton and has been married to Paul Skelton for 34 years. They have two sons, Jacob and Caleb, a wonderful daughter-in-law, Christine, and a beautiful grandson, Hampton. She is extremely excited to be back in her hometown and feels that she has come full circle in her personal and professional life. She embraces the positive and progressive growth of Carrollton and UWG and enjoys the arts, walking the GreenBelt, reading, cooking, and writing.
