Dr. Adam Tarlton

Hello Hickory Ridge Family!

My name is Dr. Adam Tarlton, and this is my first year at Hickory Ridge High School. I have been in Education for thirteen years, twelve of them spent in a neighboring county. I am from Monroe, NC where I graduated from Piedmont High School in 2004. I consider myself to be a lifelong learner, and I love venturing into new challenges and adventures. When it comes to English, I love World and American Literature, and I love to teach grammar in the context of writing. My most favorite moments in the classroom are watching students flourish as young writers. 

I have taught all levels of English, Theatre, and in the AP Capstone Program. I also teach University Writing & Research at Wingate University. I very much look forward to meeting and working with everyone in the Hickory Ridge Community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you ever need help with anything!
