Mrs. Katy Sparks

Welcome to Flight 23-24!

I am privileged to be returning to James Clemens for my second year teaching in Madison City. 

I was raised in Madison and am a proud product of Madison City Schools. I earned my bachelor's degree from Auburn University, although I'm a lifelong Alabama fan, and then moved to metro Atlanta, my husband's hometown. I worked in business and office management before I entered the field of education. I received my master's in education from Piedmont College in Demorest, Georgia in 2010 and then began my teaching journey. I have served in high school, middle school, as well as elementary as a general education teacher before earning my special education certificate in 2020. 

Before returning to Madison, I had the unique opportunity to live on St. George Island, Florida for 9 years while teaching in Apalachicola, Florida. During those years, I also served as the Site Coordinator for a federal 21st CCLC after-school and summer enrichment program. 

In my free time, I love spending time with my family, watching college football (ROLL TIDE!), visiting different spots in the mountains, crafting, and trying to garden. My husband, Justin, and I have 2 children who attend Madison City Schools and love the numerous educational and social opportunities. 

I am honored to be teaching at James Clemens and in the school system that sparked my love of education and learning. Teaching is my calling and I am happy to be back at JC, working alongside a great team, as well as with our Jets students and families!
