Mrs. Elizabeth Cairns moved to Madison this summer and is excited to be a part of the Bob Jones English department. She grew up in Chattanooga, TN, and attended the University of the South (Sewanee) where she majored in English and also earned a Master’s of Education in Secondary English at UT Chattanooga. Her educational experience is varied—she has taught 11th grade English, Yearbook, Community College reading and writing, has tutored at all levels, homeschooled her children, subbed long term in elementary schools, worked as an AP testing coordinator, and most recently taught 8th grade English in Enterprise, AL. She has a passion for teaching upperclass students to understand themselves, others, and the world as they prepare to leave high school. She loves reading, playing games, walking and hiking, traveling, and her family. She has two children who attend Bob Jones and one at Discovery Middle. Her husband currently serves as an Army Chaplain at Redstone Arsenal. She will be teaching 11th and 12 grade English.
