My name is James Cox, and this is my second year teaching 8th grade ELA here at West Carroll Jr./Sr. High School. I have a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education from the University of Tennessee at Martin, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude before going to teach at Tigrett Middle School in Jackson, Tennessee.

This past April, I got engaged to my fiancee, Rachel, who is in graduate school at UT Health Science in Memphis. We are getting married June 2018, and I am incredibly excited! I enjoy reading Harry Potter, watching the St. Louis Cardinals, and playing cards with friends and family, but my passion is doing everything I can to make sure my students are as ready as possible for high school and beyond.
