Education is very important to Mrs. Awdish:
She earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Then she took some graduate classes at Tennessee State University before returning to Belmont to complete her Master of Arts in English. After spending so much time in school, Mrs. Awdish realized that she wanted to take her education and share it with others, especially pre-teens, teens, and young adults. So, Mrs. Awdish decided to return to Belmont one more time to earn a teaching license and a Master of Arts in Teaching. Shortly after receiving her M.A.T. and marrying Mr. Awdish, the Awdishs decided to move to Virginia. This will be her fourth year teaching eighth grade English at Sterling Middle, and she is still so excited to be working at Sterling!
