M.Ed., Secondary Education - English as a Second Language, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga 2018
Cecily Honeycutt teaches U.S. history and AP U.S. history. Honeycutt has a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, a M.Ed. from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and is a doctoral candidate in the learning and leadership program at UTC.
After college, Honeycutt stepped into the world of academia and landed her first teaching job at South Pittsburg High School, just down the river from Baylor. She taught five different history courses, and she was more or less the entire history department and a one woman show. Honeycutt has been recognized several times for her outstanding teaching and efforts in the classroom, receiving the News Channel 12 Golden Apple Award in 2019, the News Channel 9 TN Lottery Educator of the Week Award, and she was named teacher of the year at South Pittsburg High School for the 2019-20 school year.
Originally from Chattanooga, Honeycutt had hoped to attend Baylor as a student, but this was not a possibility as she was living in North Carolina. After starting her teacher career, she dreamed of teaching at Baylor and she was thrilled to realize her goal.
She loves spending time outdoors and traveling with her husband, Will, and her daughter, Elizabeth.
