Ms. Molly Knight

My name is Molly Knight and I’m so excited to join the Trip Family for the 2020-2021 school year! This will be my first year in Kindergarten, but 8th year teaching overall. I taught 1st grade for 5 years in DeKalb County, and 7th grade reading for 2 years in Fulton County. I’m ready for the new opportunities (and fun!) that this year will bring! My goal is to have my students walk away each day feeling they’re loved, cared for, and important.

 I am passionate about teaching, but also about my family. I have been married to my husband for 14 years and we have a precious 3 year old son, Judah. My husband spent 8 years in the USMC until we settled down in North Georgia for him to pursue his dream of going to culinary school. Some things I enjoy are: reading, running, coffee, my church, singing, the color yellow, sprinkles, playing with my son, going to the beach, and cooking! 

I can’t wait to meet you! Go Rams!
