What’s Right With Our Schools: Juanita Foster

ROSSVILLE, GA (WDEF) – When Juanita Foster began her teaching career, Dwight D. Eisenhower was in office. Her love of children kept Foster coming back year after year. That kind of dedication is is the bedrock of what’s right with our schools.

Ms. Foster says, “I’ve always known that I wanted to be a teacher since I was a toddler. What really brought me into teaching was my love for kids.”

She continues, “When I first started teaching here in Walker County, I was the only black teacher here in Walker County, believe it or not. I had to teach PE. I had to teach Fine Arts. We have what we call Fine Arts programs. Of course, the schools were not integrated at that time as you know.  I’m 89 years old now, and I still believe that you can continue to grow. So, I continue to try to keep abreast up with the trends.”

Robert Stinson is the Principal at Rossville Middle School.

He says, “You can watch some of her best digital content on the official RMS TikTok Instagram and Twitter at RealRMS Bulldogs.”

Ms. Foster adds, “I meet a lot of the kids that I have taught in the past. It makes me feel good to know that they have, you know, they are progressing. They have done good things. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, and I will always like to do that.”
