• Georgia Studies  

    Welcome to 8th grade Georgia Studies!

    My name is Mrs. McWhorter and I am very excited for the opportunity to teach you about the state of Georgia!

     I am originally from Georgia and I love to share the story of this great state!  I attended Georgia Southern University and I have been teaching Georgia Studies for several years in Paulding County. 

    I have three children, a wonderful husband and a cute pup named Gurley.   My favorite things to do include reading and traveling.  I look forward to a great year at P.B. Ritch!!

    Here are a few fun facts to get you started:

    State Bird: Brown Thrasher (was once the name of the Atlanta hockey team)
