    Amy Gravitt


    Hello Cougar Nation! My name is Amy Gravitt and I am excited to be a part of this amazing school as the Co-Lead Title I Teacher. I am beginning my eleventh year in education and have previously worked at both Whitlow and Big Creek Elementary schools within Forsyth County. Throughout my years in education, I have worked as an Interrelated Resource teacher for grades K-5th, a Kindergarten and 1st grade homeroom teacher, an Early Intervention Program (EIP) teacher, and an Instructional Coach. I received my undergraduate degree from North Georgia College and State University with a dual certificate in Early Childhood and Special Education. I then received my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, followed by an Educational Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and mostly recently completed my Tier I Leadership Certificate from Piedmont College. My husband and I are blessed with two sweet daughters, ages 15 and 3. I am looking forward to a wonderful year of working with amazing students, supportive parents and an incredible staff.

    This is my 5th year teaching at Cumming Elementary. My joy is teaching and I am blessed to be a part of an amazing school! I received my B.S. in Communications from Rutgers University and my masters in Early Education from Grand Canyon University along with a gifted endorsement. When I am not teaching, you will find me hanging out with my husband and two dogs and watching my daughter play college volleyball. "Go Hawks"!! I look forward to making many memories with all of you this coming year.
