About Sandra Strom

Welcome to Mrs. Strom's Home Page. I teach eleventh grade AP English Language and Composition and twelfth grade AP English Literature and Composition at Paris High School. This is my nineteenth year at PHS, my twenty-eighth overall as a teacher. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I also chair the English Department and coach Future Problem Solving.

I was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and grew up in Jackson, Mississippi, where I graduated from Murrah High School. I attended the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) where I received a BA degree in English. My graduate work is in Supervision of Instruction from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

I have taught for twenty-eight years in Jackson, Mississippi at Jackson Preparatory School, at Travis Junior High in Paris, and at Paris High School. I am married to Dr. Bert Strom and have three children: Kelly George, who is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, is married to Ben George, an Air Force engineer, and lives in San Antonio where Ben commands the Air Force’s Cyber-Security wing; Paul, who also graduated from the Academy, is married to the former Jennifer Smith, and is an Air Force pilot and instructer based at Scott AFB in Illinois; and Jordan, who is a graduate of Texas A&M University at College Station, is married to A.J. Pitkin, and lives in San Diego, where A.J. works for a real estate investment trust firm and Jordan is the administrator of a local Young Life Area.  My children have blessed Bert and me with eight beautiful grandchildren: Nathan George, Andrew George, Katie George, Gracelyn George, Taylor Strom, Evan Strom, Judah Pitkin, and Georgia Pitkin.

My passions are my family, my faith, and my students.  I feel very blessed to be able to teach at Paris High School and to work with such wonderful faculty, staff, and students.

Beginning is easy; finishing is hard!

Aristotle once said, "We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."  Let's all determine to make this an excellent school year in every way.  And that means that each of us commits to repeatedly pursue excellence as a habit of life...everyday...not just when we feel like it!
