Hello to all my parents and students!! My name is Mrs. Callaway and I am going to be your child’s 1st Grade Teacher! I am so happy to have you and your child be a part of our classroom this year!! I am very excited to be working with you all and honored to be your child’s teacher. This will be my 5th year at Guyton Elementary School. I am so excited to be a Guyton Gator!! I love 1st Grade and all the exploring, learning and fun we get to have!! We have such a great team, this is a great year to be a Firstie!
This will be my 15th year of teaching elementary-aged children. I am certified to teach students in Pre-K thru 5th Grade. I have previously taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, as well as Fifth Grade.
I am originally from Effingham County and moved to the Atlanta area after graduating from Georgia Southern University in 2007, with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. We lived up there for a little over 4 years before we decided to move back home. I do love the snow up there, but am so glad to be back at home with the beach and my family/friends.
I am married to Mr. John Callaway. We are proud parents to our sweet son! We also have nieces and nephews. At home, we now have two dogs; a Papillion mix named Gizmo, a long-haired Dachshund named Gabi and the sweetest cat you’ll ever meet named Sadie! We also have a variety of reptiles, like snakes, lizards and tortoises. We have quite the full house, or a zoo as my husband sees it! :)
In my free time, I love to read books, draw/paint, exercise (YOGA!!), spend time with husband/son, family and friends, go hiking, EAT and try out new restaurants. Hey, my husband is a chef and this girl knows how to eat!! :) My favorite food is sushi! Yum :)
I can’t wait to get to know you and your child better this year!! This is going to be a great school year and a fantastic year in 1st Grade!
