My name is Jessica Giraldo and I am so excited to be joining the Brandywine Family! This will be my second year teaching, as I previously taught First Grade at Chestatee Elementary. I grew up in Cumming and attended school in Forsyth County all throughout my early, middle, and high school years. I graduated from the University of North Georgia with a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. My absolute favorite thing about teaching is getting to build close relationships with each of my students and providing them with love and support to ensure that they are successful in their learning journey. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my friends and family. I look forward to being a part of the fourth grade team this year! 480474 firstname.lastname@example.org Delaney Windham
Howdy, I'm Delaney Windham! I am originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, where I spent my childhood dreaming of becoming an educator. I earned my bachelor's degree from Tennessee Tech University and taught 4th grade two years before moving here.This is my second year teaching at Brandywine, and I love being a Badger!!! I love to instill goal setting in students academically and personally. My number one goal is to make BWE students feel safe and loved. I strive to facilitate a positive learning environment where students have a sense of curiosity, individuality, and purpose.

I was lucky enough to grow up in beautiful San Diego, California. After high school I moved to Gainesville, Florida for college. Go Gators!!! I met my husband, Brian in the saxophone section of the marching band and we have been married for 13 years. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in math, science, and technology. After college, we settled in Wesley Chapel, Florida, where I taught third, fourth, and fifth grade for six years. I had the pleasure of teaching fifth grade for a few years with Kimberly Benton.
My family moved to the Atlanta area in 2011 when my husband was transferred to AT&T. My family currently lives in Alpharetta with our three adorable daughters. My girls are my world and my class will hear me talk about them quite a bit. In my free time I love to read, travel, shop, and spend time with my family.
