We would like to introduce the new TIMA Crew Board for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. Some of our goals for this school year will include additional forms of communication and forming committees for parent volunteers. We encourage all parents to participate in The Crew and look forward to working together. Please use this email if you have direct questions or ideas for us. We encourage your feedback! firstname.lastname@example.org
Jennifer Turner, President
Jennifer Turner is honored to have her two sons at Tybee Island Maritime Academy. Jennifer earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Brewton Parker College and her Master of Education in Instructional Technology from Georgia Southern University. She has spent much of the last decade as a high school instructor of Business Education and Career Technology in the Savannah Chatham Public School System. Jennifer taught at Windsor Forest High School and was fortunate to be part of the inaugural faculty at Islands High School where she served as head of the Career Technical Agricultural Education department and Work Based Learning Coordinator.

Misty Hughes, Secretary/Membership
Misty Hughes is the mother of three children. Her oldest is a 9th grader at Savannah Arts Academy, she has a 6th grader at Coastal Middle School and the youngest is a kindergartener at TIMA. Misty is thankful that SCCPSS offers so many school choices and is grateful to see her children benefit from many of the best. Misty truly believes that many of these schools are as good (or better!) than the private schools in our community. She has enjoyed serving as room mom for many classrooms, on several PTA boards and has spent many hours volunteering at her children’s schools. Misty believes that volunteering is a great way to really get to know her children’s school environment, their teachers and classmates. This school year was the first for her family at TIMA and they have plenty of great things to say about it! Misty’s family loves the small, nurturing environment and the approach to teaching and learning that accommodated every child as an individual. As a Crew member, Misty is hoping to welcome and encourage plenty of new volunteers to join in and make our great, little school even better.

Kellie Jenkins, Fundraising
Kellie Jenkins is from Savannah and could not imagine raising her children anywhere else. Walker will be in 4th grade next year and daughter Preslie will be in the 2nd grade at TIMA. After attending a big, traditional school during Walkers kindergarten year, she feels very blessed to have her children attending TIMA. Kellie and her family spend a lot of time on the water and she loves being “taught” by her children about our beautiful rivers and marshlands. Kellie looks forward to serving on the TIMA Crew Board and is excited to be a part of the future of our little school.
