Mrs. Sandra Bost
I grew up in North Georgia, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains- graduated from highschool and set off to pursue the dream of becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist. I graduated from Auburn University in March 1997, after marrying my husband, Jeff (1994)...and having our first child, Mackenzie (1996). The day after graduation, we loaded up our dog, our baby, and our boat...and headed to Nashville for my husband-drummer to pursue his music dreams. That is where I landed my first (and only) job as a Speech Therapist.
After my first year, we had the opportunity to move to Saudi Arabia. We moved there in 1998. My husband managed the hand-crafted rug division of a carpet factory, and we lived the ex-patriot life in the Middle East. It was an amazing 3 year experience, and that is where our second child, Keegan, was born (1999). We entered Etowah County in 2001 to become houseparents at Big Oak Ranch. We were there for 3 years, and left (10 sons richer) in 2005.
During our time here in Etowah County, I have been a "first-year teacher" 5 times!!! (Speech Therapist, Collaborative Special Education, 4th and 5th Grade English, Multiple Disabilities Unit and Highschool English/Journalism) I consider it a privilege to have had such diverse experience in the wonderful field of education, and am excited to begin my 8th year here at Etowah! Attalla has been good to us, and we are proud to be part of the Blue Devil Nation. Mackenzie and her husband (Jacob) are both Etowah graduates, foster parents, and are expecting their first baby, Miss Jo Hucksley in November. Although Keegan did not graduate from EHS, part of his heart will always be a Blue Devil. He married an Etowah Alumna (Mary) in April 2018, and they just bought their first house!
To celebrate our empty nest, my husband and I adopted a deaf American Bulldog named Kar. We are active members at Grace Bible Church, foster parents, and love Jesus. We are passionate about missions and have had the opportunity to serve in Africa, Haiti, and in East Gadsden. In 2014, we welcomed our Haitian son, GM, into our family. He graduated from Gadsden State in 2018, and is getting married in September 2019.

Welcome, Class of 2022! I am excited to journey with you this year!

As we explore, we will answer questions like, "What is the relationship between morality, idealism, and power?"
