Mrs. Kerry Montgomery

I am proud to say that I have had the privilege of working as guidance counselor at Ashville Middle School since 2003.  Prior to becoming guidance counselor, I worked at AMS as a 6th grade math teacher.  I love Ashville Middle School and its students.  I am a 1985 graduate of Ashville High School and a native of St. Clair County.  I attended Jacksonville State University and received a B.S. degree in elementary education in 1989.  I also have a Master of Science degree in Counseling from JSU.  Go Gamecocks!

I have been married to my husband, Jim, for 34 years.  We have one son, Tyler.  He is a graduate of UAB and is currently employed at Blunt Springs Materials in Ashville.  He is married to Eden and they have one son, Carter Jim Montgomery.  Our daughter, Anna,  is a graduate of Jefferson State Community College and is married to Corey Young. They have two children, Jack Manley and Abel Azariah Young.  Being a grandmother is my favorite hobby and I love spending time with my three grandsons!  I have two cats, Gimli and Jasper, and two dogs, Bull and Petunia.

In my spare time I enjoy being a grandmother, traveling, reading, cooking and walking.  My family is actively involved in church at Cool Springs Baptist Church.
