Mrs. Tina Durham
Hello! My name is Tina Durham. I am the Speech Pathologist at Dade Middle. I also work at Davis Elementary. I have been teaching for 32 years and I live in Trenton, GA. After graduating from Section High School, I attended Northeast Alabama Community College for two years. After graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Science, I pursued Elementary Education at Athens State University. It was at Athens State that I earned my Bachelor’s in Elementary/Early Childhood. Elementary education was a very popular field at that time. I was unable to find a job in this field. I was offered a position as a speech teacher and I accepted it. I researched constantly on what to do with students with a speech impairment. I discovered that it fascinated me. I looked into obtaining certification in the field of speech. After taking several classes, I obtained my certification in speech pathology. I went on to seek my Master’s in Speech Pathology.
I am married to Frederick Durham. He is currently a supervisor in a hospital. We have been married for four years. I have two dogs. Ritzy is a golden retriever and Toby is an Australian Shepherd. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, and traveling.
