Mrs. Anissa Mirtes
My name is Anissa Mirtes and I am teaching third grade this year.
I graduated from the University of Middle Tennessee in Dec. 1992 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I have a Master's in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia and I have a Specialist Degree in Technology Education from Lesley University. I have been teaching since February of 1992 and will complete 27 years this next year.
My husband, Matt, and I have been married 25 years. We have 3 children. Our son, Colter, is 21 and attends Valdosta State University. We have twin daughters, Maggie and Josie, who graduated from SHS in May. Maggie will be attending college at The University of North Georgia at Gainesville. Josie will attend Georgia Highlands College.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. You might find me working with my husband on our property in Ellijay. I also enjoy working with Hot Air Balloon events. You may also find me traveling with my friend Mrs. Jones. We like to participate in different races.
