Whenever Macon County Director of Schools Shawn Carter visits Red Boiling Springs High School teacher Tamara Kirts’ room, he always thinks before knocking on her door.

“I know that she doesn’t like to be disturbed in class, not because she’s not doing something, but because she doesn’t like the interruption for her kids,” Carter said. “I’m a little intimidated going to (her) room, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s not for any other reason other than I know there is teaching going on from bell to bell in that classroom.”
