About Ms. Tia Hurley

 Mrs. Tia Hurley
Mrs. Hurley is a proud graduate of Cedar Grove High School class of 1994. She is a wife, mother, daughter, friend, and educator which are all titles she bears with great honor. Mrs. Hurley received her Bachelors of Arts degree in Middle Grades Education from Brenau University and began her career with The Dekalb County School System in 2001. When asked how she views being a teacher, Mrs. Hurley’s response was, “Teaching or being a teacher is not always placed on the highest of pedalstals, but being a teacher to me is like a priceless piece of art. If you place a million tiny marks on an empty canvas, with a little creativity, persistence, and determination a masterpiece can be created. Although the tiny marks will take more time to create a portrait, just as it often takes more time to reach some students than others; in time the students are reachable just as the tiny marks can create a masterpiece in which one can always be remembered by. The tiny marks on the canvas serve as representations of the imprints that I have left and hope to leave on each of my students, as well as the marks they have left on my heart. My masterpiece is comprised of all the successful, well-rounded, productive, thinking, and caring individuals that I have had the honor of influencing in a positive way. Teaching is truly an honorable profession and a magnificient work of art.”
