Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Joey Middlebrooks

I have been teaching special education on The Ridge since 1999.  The first 16 years were at RSM Elementary/Middle.  In 2015 I decided it was time to grow up and joined the team at RSM High.  I teach there where my beautiful wife. Tiffany, also teaches and my youngest child, Mikala, attends. All three of my other kids graduated RSM.  My oldest son, Kyle graduated from SWU and is working in Special Education at another school within the district.  Miranda is attending CSU and majoring in nursing.  Jonathan graudated last year after joining the SC National Guard and will start college after his training is completed.  My undergraduate degree is in Physical Education with Coaching Endorsements from Indiana Wesleyan University.  I completed a Master's Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in Special Education.  Along with teaching, I am the school's athletic director and varsity softball coach.  (Please check out our softball page under athletics.) I believe all students are capable of being career ready and my goal is to provide the best foundation possible for my students to find a fulfilling career.
