The teachers spotlighted for the month of February by the Golden Graffiti Staff are these two amazing teachers, Mrs. Christina Logue and Mr. Justin Logue. The Logues (Mrs. Christina Logue and Mr. Justin Logue) have been married for 18 years and have a 9-year-old son named Everett Logue. They met through a mutual friend who said they were two of the sweetest people she knew and that they would make an excellent couple. Mrs. Logue knew it was fate when she discovered that Mr. Logue wanted to be a teacher as well! The Logues enjoy camping and exploring new places. They particularly enjoy visiting waterfalls and hiking trails. They went to Cloudland Canyon State Park recently and descended 600 stairs to get to the waterfalls. It was incredible!
Christina Logue
Mrs. Christina Logue is the older sister to her brother, who is 11 months younger than her. She is the daughter of Jimmy and Jeanie Bowen. She is the mother of 9-year-old Everett Logue, a third-grader who enjoys graphic novels and Minecraft. She also fairly appreciates empowering quotes. A quote she loves and lives by is “A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” ― Roald Dahl, The Twits
Mrs. Logue graduated from Bainbridge High School in 2003 (Class of ’03!). She was a piccolo player in the marching band and a flute player in the symphonic band. She lettered on the swim team, ran cross country, and played soccer. She was the senior class secretary and a member of the debate team. Mrs. Logue decided to stay in Bainbridge after high school to attend Bainbridge College, where she met her husband, Mr. Justin Logue, where they married and earned their degrees. They graduated from Bainbridge College with an associate’s degree, Thomas University with a Bachelor’s degree, Valdosta State University (online) with a Master’s degree, and Walden University with a Specialist degree (online).
Her mother was the Assistant Superintendent for the Decatur County Board of Education. She is one of the reasons Ms. Logue chose to be a teacher. She decided on the profession because she has always loved learning and wanted to share that love with others. To her, learning new things is similar to putting together a puzzle: all of the pieces are in front of you, but you must be able to see each one in order to complete the picture. If you don’t have the right tools, learning can be frustrating. Teachers can assist students in breaking down large tasks into manageable chunks. She aspires to be the teacher who taught students that “making mistakes” is part of the learning process. You must be brave to try, even if it means you will not get it right the first time. She aspires to be a teacher so that students would feel safe to learn in their own way, with her there to help them in any way she could.

She has been in education for over 15 years, ”I have worked as an elementary, middle, and now high school teacher.” Mrs. Logue is in her first year at Bainbridge High School, where she is co-teaching Biology to help teach a diverse group of students. She enjoys pushing herself and trying new things, which led her to pursue teaching in a variety of subjects and grade levels. She hopes and prays that she will still be teaching Biology at Bainbridge High School in five years. “This has been my absolute favorite position in my entire 15-year career!” Since there are two teachers in the class, they both have the opportunity to use their unique teaching styles to reach the entire class. While she enjoys many aspects of her job, her favorite is teaching, stating that every day feels like a new adventure; there is always room for advancement within the profession. She strives to grow and learn with the same zeal as she does for her students. One of her favorite quotes about teaching comes from Jean-Baptiste de La Salle: “Teachers who are not actively involved in the learning process themselves, force their students to drink from stagnant water.”
Mrs. Logue’s strength comes from her willingness to try new things, and I’m not afraid to fail perspective. She believes that “ It gives my students confidence to work through difficult problems because they know I will not judge them if they make a mistake.” She also believes she is optimistic and enthusiastic, which makes others feel like they can be the best version of themselves when she is around. She tends to walk around the classroom to communicate with students who need a little extra confidence or encouragement. She enjoys checking in with parents throughout the semester, but especially at the start of each semester to ensure that we get off to a good start. She makes an effort to call frequently so that we can stay on the same page throughout the semester. She collaborates with the general education teacher with whom she works each block. She supports each teacher’s classroom management system by running the classroom in the manner in which they are most comfortable.
Mr. Justin Logue
Here at Bainbridge High School, Mr. Logue has been teaching geometry for five years. His parents are Kirby and Cathy Logue, and he has one younger sister named Kristin Devine who is married to John Devine and lives in Huntsville, Alabama with their two children, Ben and Maddie Devine. Everett Logue is the only child that Mr. Logue and Christina Logue have. Between 1995 to 1999, he attended Bainbridge High School. Mr. Logue played football for four years as an offensive and defensive tackler (#71) while a student at BHS. He began working for his teaching degree at what is now Bainbridge College, where he received his associate’s degree, and completed it online at Walden University, where he received his specialist degree.
According to Mr. Logue, he thinks he does a good job of “dissecting content to help students understand the material being taught.” Also, he believes he does an excellent job of encouraging pupils to seek out aid by asking plenty of questions. He attributes his teaching style to Mr. Rhyner, his eighth-grade instructor. Also, Mr. Logue claims that he chose to enter the teaching profession because “students often feel that they aren’t competent in arithmetic.” For everyone to feel successful, he decided to make math accessible by becoming a teacher. His favorite quote is “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.”- Vince Lombardi.
His favorite aspect of teaching is the chance it gives him to form relationships with his pupils. He loves what he does so much that he says he sees himself continuing to teach this topic for the next five years. Among the things Mr. Logue wants you all to know about him are his “great Georgia Bulldog fandom” and his love of “golf, fishing, hunting, and spending time with his family.”
Thank you for all you do at Bainbridge High School and congratulations on being selected as the featured Golden Graffiti teacher of the month!
