Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Sonja Williams

        I am a native of Millen, Ga. I am a proud honor graduate of Jenkins County High School. I furthered my education at Savannah State College (now University). I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in 1995.  I went on to earn my teaching certification at Paine College in 1997 through the Fast Track Program. Although I was in the classroom, I continued my education at Southern Wesleyan where I earned my Masters of Education in 2007.


       This is my 24th year as an educator in the Richmond County School System. I began my teaching career at Tubman Middle School. I later transferred to John Milledge Elementary School. I was named Teacher of the Year in 2007.  In 2009, I became a member of the Murphey Middle School Maverick Family.  I was named Teacher of the Year again in 2012. 


I bring beauty, creativity, and energy to my classroom!!
