News & Announcements

Welcome back, Mrs. Randall!

My name is Torie Randall, and I am returning to Altruria after two years away to start my 8th year of teaching. I’ve taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade at Altruria in the past, and this year I’m happy to be returning to teach 4th grade! I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Memphis, so I bleed Tiger Blue. I spend my free time traveling, attending sporting events, and volunteering at my church with my husband of almost 11 years and my 6 ½ year old son. I look forward to returning to the classroom and loving on your children!

Welcome to Altruria, Mrs. Ransom!

My name is Christy Ransom, and this is my fifth year teaching Kindergarten. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Memphis, and my first year teaching was spent in China. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful Altruria family! My husband has been a Bartlett City School teacher for 14 years, and our three children attend Bartlett City Schools as well. I look forward to teaching and loving on the children at Altruria!
