Tamara Etterling, Principal
I grew up in the North Hall community. After graduating from North Hall High School, I attended Brenau University where I earned a Bachelor of Science and Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in Hall County for the past 16 years, where I have had many opportunities to serve the families of this school system. I have taught multiple grade levels at the elementary levels, and was able to spend a year at the high school level. I served as an adjunct teacher in the College of Education at the University of North Georgia, where I loved getting to work with pre- service teachers. After becoming an Instructional Coach five years ago, I decided to attend Valdosta State University where I obtained my Education Specialist’s Degree in Leadership. I am so excited to be back in the North Hall Cluster, and serving this community.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have 5 wonderful children, Matthew, Bailey, Jake, Lawson, and Nolee. I love to travel, especially to the beach.
Dean DeVito, Assistant Principal
I began my career as an educator in 2001 after I graduated from the University of South Florida. My first job was as a high school teacher in Florida, and it wasn’t until 2006 when my family moved to Georgia…I have been working with the students of NHMS ever since.
I moved into administration after a 12 year tenure teaching at NHMS that included time working as: a Special Education teacher, the co-lead Special Education teacher, a teacher of 7th grade Math, the co-coordinator of the Earhart-Edison STEM Academy and the head wrestling coach. I look forward to many more years serving the Trojan community as a part of the administrative team.
