Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jim McMichen

While I have been at South Paulding since 2019, I am excited to be serving this year alongside a great team as an Assistant Principal.  I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Communications, and a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education focusing on Marketing & Business.  I also serve as the Executive Director of the Paulding Education Foundation since 2014, where we focus on helping student with resources to continue their education beyond high school. I am Blessed to be married to Trisha who is a teacher in the Paulding County School District, and we have three children that are either enrolled or have graduated from Paulding County School District. When we are not at South, we enjoy traveling, watching Georgia Football, creating memories and spending time with family.  As you might imagine, I am a huge University of Georgia football fan, even in the tough seasons.

While public education is my second career, it is a calling that I am passionate about.  My goal is to help others see the possibilities, achieve what they are passionate about, and become all they were created to be. I am committed to make a positive impact on SPHS and the surrounding community every day I can.

I look forward to working and meeting all of you throughout the school year.
