Assistant Principal

Hello! My name is Emma Whitlock. I am a lifelong resident of the Smiths Station community, and attended Smiths Station schools from kindergarten through twelfth grade. After graduating from Smiths Station High School, I attended Auburn University, where I received my B.S. degree in Secondary Education – Biology. I began my education career by teaching Science at Wacoochee Junior High School in 2002. I completed my M.S. in Instructional Leadership and Administration at Troy University in 2011. I am both honored and excited to be a part of the administrative team at SSHS and to have the opportunity to help students to reach their maximum potential and graduate well-prepared for work and college.

My husband, Gary, is also a Smiths Station High School and Auburn University graduate. We have two daughters, Kate and Anna. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching television (I am especially fond of Doctor Who), reading, sewing, and other crafts.
