High School English, Lead Teacher High School


A Haywood County transplant, Mrs. Inman was born and raised near Chattanooga, TN in a small town much like Waynesville.  Her Kindergarten teacher was such an inspiration, Mrs. Inman knew early on she wanted to be a teacher.  She recognized this calling and chose to attend the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where she earned a BA in Music and a BS in Secondary English Education.  Her first teaching experience was in a large inner-city high school.  A middle school position opened up in the school where she attended, and Mrs. Inman became a part of the faculty at Rhea Central where she taught for five years.  Mrs. Inman's family moved to Clyde in 2002, and she took a leave to be with her children.  After homeschooling for several years, Mrs. Inman and her family felt the time was right to return to teaching and to a more traditional setting when Shining Rock opened in 2015, where she has taught since 2016.  As a founding member and family, Mrs. Inman appreciates the progress both her students and own children made over the years at SRCA, and she is excited about the growth in years to come! She currently lives in Clyde with her husband, children, cats, and dogs.

Having had children progress through high school, I understand the joys and challenges of these formative years. The students are truly the joy of my job, and I love helping them succeed!
