Crystal Pinson Carver

5th Social Studies
Team 5A

Welcome to Jasper Middle School!

My name is Crystal Pinson Carver and this is my 23rd year as a teacher in Pickens County.  I have experience in grades 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, with most of my teaching in fourth and fifth.  

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Management (my first career) and a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from North Georgia College (now known as The University of North Georgia).  I also hold an Educational Specialist degree from The University of Georgia.

I teach 5th grade social studies.   If you ever have any questions about your child's progress, please do not hesitate to call or email.
