Carly Morris (’09) Returns to Mount Pisgah
Veteran Educator/Coach to Teach Language Arts, Coach Volleyball
Carly Morris, a 2009 graduate of Mount Pisgah Christian School, is returning home to the Patriots.
Morris will rejoin Mount Pisgah in the fall, holding a variety of roles throughout the Middle School after spending the past five years teaching and coaching at King’s Ridge Christian School in Alpharetta, Ga.
In the classroom at Mount Pisgah, Morris will teach Middle School language arts. Beyond the classroom, she will be part of a new school-wide Student Life team, working primarily with Middle School students. On the athletics staff, Morris will serve as head coach of the Middle School Girls Volleyball squad and an assistant for the Girls Varsity team.
“We’re beyond thrilled to have Carly back home again,” said Marie Woods, Head of Middle School. “As a graduate of Mount Pisgah, she represents the best of what we do. A passionate educator, exemplary student leader, and dedicated coach, Carly will elevate our students to achieve and lead in line with our mission of preparing them for college and life beyond the classroom.”
Morris, who went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in English from Samford University in 2013 after graduating from Mount Pisgah, began teaching at King’s Ridge Christian School later that same year. There, Morris taught English, and coached volleyball. She was head coach for the varsity team while also serving as the program coordinator, overseeing both junior varsity and middle school volleyball teams.
As a Mount Pisgah student from grades 3-12, Morris said the connections she made with her teachers are her fondest memories. Now as a teacher herself, she aims to create those same bonds with her students.
“Here, the ministry of the teachers isn't confined to a room with four walls,” Morris said of Mount Pisgah. “The teachers have the opportunity to coach, mentor, and lead their students in a variety of different ways that are unique to the Mount Pisgah student experience. It is the teachers and other leaders who uphold the beliefs and vision of the school, equipping students to be servant leaders, to be empathetic and understanding, and to make contributions in a world that desperately needs Christ-like leaders. Those teachers are the ones who prepared me for college and for this moment, as I assume the same role that they once played in my life. I am so excited to get started and to once again be a Patriot!”
Morris is the daughter of Bob Morris and Mary Ann Morris, Mount Pisgah’s Head of Upper School.
