Ms. Opal South

The 2020-21 school year will mark my fourth at HTMS. I have worked in education since 2004 in both private and public schools, in the classroom and in administration. I have led Creative Writing workshops, taught music, and tutored struggling students in math and reading.

This year will mark my second year as HTMS Debate Club Coach. Go Huskies!

  • I use Schoology for all class announcements and assignments. I use Remind for homework reminders throughout the year. Students and parents will receive codes to join these platforms at the beginning of the year.
