My name is Sonia McMichael and I would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. I look forward to helping your child adjust smoothly to middle school and learn some valuable skills that will help them throughout their academic career and in the big wide world.
I’d like to begin by telling you a little about myself. This is my 14th year in education and this will be my second year teaching at First Colony. After getting my Bachelor of Science degree from University of Arizona, I was a claims investigator for some time before I made the switch to become a teacher. I obtained my Teaching Certification from the University of LaVerne in California. I have continued my education with NASA as an Aerospace educator and have been a Robotics Coach for 4 years.
Outside of school I have a son who is graduating this year from University of Alabama honors program in Aerospace Engineering. I my leisure time, I enjoy traveling, kayaking, hiking, biking, and reading. I also enjoy eating out and trying foods from every culture! I am a first generation American (my mother is German and my father is Greek).
