##### About Sonya

My love for teaching extends from a lifelong love of learning. I know that a caring and dedicated teacher will help students realize their greatest potential. I have had the pleasure of teaching students who have been academically challenged because of their environment. The joy that I see in the students' faces when the light bulb finally comes, is the greatest joy.

I am currently a third grade teacher for Atlanta Public Schools. I have been a teacher for 16 years, having taught all levels from third through eigth. In the last 7 years, I have been a part of the instruction staff at Margaret Fain Elementary School which is located in Northwest Atlanta in the Adamsville area. I have taught Students with Disabilities, ESOL students, and regular Ed students each year.

I have always had a love for Mathematics since my grade school days. I was the only Elementary Education student taking Calculus III during my undergraduate studies. I find Mathematics one of the most fascinating subjects to learn.

Literacy is the foundation needed to be successful in all other subject areas. I am an avid reading and I enjoy teaching students to find the same passion and love as they learn to read and understand what they are reading.

I have been able to help students make sense of the problems. I assist students with understanding that their response can be different from others as long as they can explain it. The explanations can be justified using words, pictures, charts, diagrams, etc.
