Meet the 6th Grade
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year at Grace Snell Middle School. I look forward to sharing with you the excitement that returning to school with new teachers and new classmates bring. Sixth grade is a special time as students become “middle schoolers” with unique social, emotional, and academic characteristics, and we provide a variety of activities to engage, enrich, and meet their needs. Your child’s success at Grace Snell Middle is my top priority. I look forward to partnering with our students, parents, and community members to ensure both academic and behavioral success for all students at Grace Snell Middle. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.
I began my teaching career in 1998 with Gwinnett County Public Schools. During my nine years as a teacher, I taught language arts, social studies, and science at Summerour and Sweetwater Middle Schools. In 2007 I became an administrator at Shiloh Middle School where I experienced many different leadership roles including Assistant Principal for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, Connections Administrator, Testing Coordinator, Discipline Coordinator and other responsibilities. I am particularly proud of my participation in a mentoring program for young ladies while at Shiloh Middle. My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in Middle School Education from Georgia State University, a master’s degree in Middle School Science from Brenau University, and Leadership Certification from the University of West Georgia. I am married and have two adult daughters. Again, it is an honor to serve the Grace Snell community, and I am looking forward to partnering with students, parents, and community members to ensure both academic and behavioral success for all students at Grace Snell Middle.
