Welcome to Hunter Middle School.
I am Robert S. Alford and I am beginning my 9th year as principal at Hunter Middle. It continues to be a privilege for me to serve as principal at Hunter. Hunter Middle School is a wonderful school with excellent staff, students and parents.
I am a product of Hamilton County Schools. I went to school for 12 years on one road. I attended Bess T Shepherd, Tyner Jr., and Tyner High Schools. I completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
The 2016 - 2017 school year begins my 34th year in education. I taught at Ringgold Elementary and Ringgold Middle Schools for my first 10 years in education. I taught 4th grade and 6th grade. I begin teaching in Hamilton County in 1993 at Tyner Middle School - teaching 8th grade math/Algebra I. After 7 years of teaching at Tyner and the year Tyner became a magnet school, I became the assistant principal at Tyner Middle. I served as assistant principal for 2 1/2 years. I was then moved to Red Bank Middle School in February 2002 to serve as the principal at Red Bank Middle. I served as principal at Red Bank Middle for 6 1/2 years. I moved to Hunter Middle School at the beginning of the 2008 - 2009 school year.
I am a huge Tennessee Vols fan and attend all of their football games. I have two Havanese dogs, Marley and Nicholas, as seen in my profile picture. All of the parents in the car line with dogs know what a huge dog person I am.
We are glad you have chosen to attend Hunter.
