Welcome to 1st Grade!
I am Miss Pinson and I am excited to be your child's Math and Science teacher this school year!
I am a Georgia Peach- born and raised! My family moved around Georgia most of my childhood. I graduated from Rome High School in 2004. (Other places I have lived- all in Georgia: Newnan, Carrollton, Pine Log, Rome, Brunswick, and Saint Simons Island.)
I graduated from LaGrange College (LaGrange, Georgia) in May of 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from Georgia Southern University (Statesboro, Georgia) in May of 2012 with a Masters of Education in Instructional Technology.
After 10 years of teaching at Altama Elementary School in Brunswick, Georgia, I moved to Houston, Texas in August of 2018.
This is my 13th year teaching and I am very excited to continue the adventure of teaching at Malala Elementary with our school staff, your child, and with you! I see MYE as a community of life-long learners demonstrating knowledge, skills, and values necessary to be kind, responsible, and successful citizens.
First Grade is a fun-filled year with a lot of learning- adding, subtracting, and becoming first grade scientists.
Throughout the year, we will be using Schoology to communicate important classroom information with students and parents. Schoology is a learning management system for K-12 schools that allows us to create, manage, and share content and resources that we are doing in our class at Malala.
If you have any questions throughout the school year, the best way to reach me is through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, I look forward to working with you and your student to make this the best school year yet!
