Meet Ms. Keim (Carita Keim)

GHA 7th - 12th English & History Teacher, 9th - 12th Homeroom Teacher

I enjoy: Learning new music, cooking for friends, listening to my students sing, and hosting a book club
I want my students to:

  • Realize they have an important role to play in the Kingdom of God and in the communities of school, church, and Holmes County
  • Speak truth to themselves

I teach because:  I love discussing things with my students. We discuss anything from the role of passion in public speaking, to women in ancient Japan, to career choices.

My students have taught me:

  • To have a passion and zeal for God
  • To love life
  • To care for friends
  • To take time to laugh
  • That preparation changes life
