"I've always wanted to teach at this technical college," said Carter. With thirty years of experience in the K-12 arena as well as being an adjunct instructor at the technical college level, Judy was a perfect fit for the kick-off of a new program. "Though I retired in 2012, I soon realized I wasn't ready to stop. I'm a teacher for life, and this is the next level of my career."

Carter's credentials include a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education, a Master of Arts in Early Childhood Education, and an EdS in Instructional Technology, all from the University of Georgia.

Carter lives in Franklin County with her husband, Keith.
