Sandra Hitchcox

1st Grade

Cecil B. Rigsby

     I grew up in Bledsoe County. I went to elementary school at Cecil B. Rigsby 1st Grade through 8th Grade. I attended high school at Bledsoe County High School. I got my Associate’s Degree at Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin, Tennessee. I received my Bachelor's Degree at Tennessee State University in Nashville.

     I have two children. My son Brian Hitchcox who is also a teacher at Ooltewah High School in Hamilton County and his wife, Erica who is a IB Coordinator at Ooltewah. My daughter, Raven Humphrey who is a multi-business owner of Blackbird Events in Chattanooga and Calliope Restaurant in Rossville, Georgia.

     I have four grandchildren Braden, Ty, and Sophie who are all in middle school in Hamilton County and Emmy who will start school in the fall in Rhea County.

     I began my teaching career at a later time in life but helping children has always been a passion of mine. It was my son that encouraged me to go back to school and finish my degree. I love teaching in a small community to help those students who struggle and show them that they can learn to do whatever they want if they are willing to put in the work. My students are not just my students while they are in my class they are my students forever. It is an honor to get this award because there are so many deserving teachers that come in everyday and give so much of themselves to education.

Opt Out Consent Form BCS

COVID FACE MASK OPT-OUT FORM Pursuant to Executive Order No. 84, issued by Governor Bill Lee on August 16, 2021, the Bledsoe County School District has developed this standardized form to provide consent for or on behalf of a student enrolled in Bledsoe County Schools to opt out a student from a face covering requirement imposed by Bledsoe County Schools pertaining to school operations and facilities. Many school-aged children are not yet eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, leaving them susceptible to infection. To ensure that students and teachers are able to safely participate in in-person instruction, it is recommended that all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools wear masks and practice social distancing when possible. More information on the CDC prevention in K-12 schools can be found on the CDC website at By completing this form, you are giving permission for your student to not wear a face covering while at school. This permission does not apply to any local, state or federal order, such as riding a school bus, or any TSSAA rule. A separate form must be completed for each student for whom you are giving permission.
