Congratulations to Katie Hankinson our 2018 2019 HTMS Teacher of the Year!
Katie came to Hightower Trail in 2014 from Oglethorpe County Middle School. Her passion for teaching children with special needs is obvious! She volunteers for Special Olympics and helped form the Rise and Shine Coffee Shop that is operated by her students at HTMS. Katie believes that her students make her a better person and teach her more about herself than she could ever imagine. We are truly grateful to have a teacher like Katie at Hightower!


Congratulations to Jodi Katz our 2018 – 2019 HTMS CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR!
Jodi was a certified teacher in Fulton County for 16 years. She joined Hightower Trail in 2013. She is a member of Autism Speaks who puts her heart and soul into her students! Jodi always comes to Hightower Trail with a big smile on her face eager to help whenever she is needed. The dedication to her students shows in the tremendous progress that they make every year! Thank you Mrs. Katz for all you do for your students. Well deserved!
