Mrs. Tabitha Odom

I am grateful to serve Journey Middle School as assistant principal. I enjoy working with teachers and other leaders in our school district to help ensure Journey's students are fully prepared to make the most of any opportunity they encounter. 

I am a University of Alabama alumna where I earned a degree in secondary English. I also earned a Master's in school counseling and a school leadership certificate from the University of West Alabama. During my time as an educator in Madison City Schools, I earned the distinction of National Board Certified Teacher. With Madison City, I have served as a teacher, instructional partner, and assistant principal. I began my journey in education as an English teacher at Oak Mountain Middle School in the Shelby County School district before moving north to Madison. 

I was raised in the small South Alabama town of Uriah just outside of Monroeville, which left me with a great appreciation for fresh seafood and good storytelling. My family and I are also proud to be Madison City residents. My husband, Dr. Brian Odom is NASA's Chief Historian, and our daughter Emma Clare attended James Clemens and is now a 2023 University of Alabama freshman. 

I am excited about opening Journey Middle School with all of you! Let's make some memories!
