Hi, My name is Wes Astin and I've been in Polk School District for 15 years. For 10 of these years, I taught 8th grade Math at Cedartown Middle School. I was a Mobile Minds Specialist for 3 years. I am currently in my 3rd year of teaching Robotics at CMS.
I graduated in 1983 from Cedartown High School. In 1987, I graduated from La Grange College with a Computer Science degree, minoring in Mathematics. In 2010, I earned a Masters degree in Instructional Technology with an Online Teaching Endorsement from Georgia Southern University .
I've been married for 26 years to Tammy Paris Astin. In my free time, I like to workout, play video games, golf and guitar.
I believe that education is a key factor to a thriving community and society. I often find it exciting that I am teaching some of my friend’s children. Not only am I influencing their academic success but I am also helping to shape them as productive citizens. I want them to know they are in a safe and stress-free environment where they can express themselves as an individual.
As a teacher, I feel I owe all my students my attention, my love of teaching and that my main goal is their success in and out of the classroom. My students will also learn that respect is earned and not giving out freely.
