    I am so excited to be joining the SBE family of Stars.  This will be my 20th year as a teacher, having served Kindergarten through Fifth Grades in different roles.  The majority of my background is working with children in the role of a co-taught, homeroom teacher.  Three years ago, I transitioned to the role of an IRR teacher and have loved every minute of it.   

    I hold a Bachelors degree in Education and Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Kansas.  I have taught in Kansas, Arizona,  and Georgia, with my past 12 years in Forsyth County Schools.  

    When not at school, I love to spend time with my family.  I am married and have 2 boys, two dogs and two cats.  As a family, we love to spend time outside.   We enjoy hiking, camping, and exploring new parts of the United States during our vacation time.

    Ms. Crowder Christine Crowder MCA
    I graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in Special Education. This is my 18th year teaching, both in Cobb and Forsyth Counties. I have enjoyed teaching students with special needs in Pre- k through 5th grade. I love being outside taking walks or hikes, hanging out with my family and dogs, watching movies and TV series, and reading. I am very lucky to have a job I love and to be part of such a wonderful program at SBE.

    Ms. DiPietrantonio Carol DiPiet IRR
    I am excited to begin my fifth year as a member of the SBE team for the 2020-21 school year. My Early Childhood/Special Education degree is from Radford University in Virginia. Twenty seven years ago I began my teaching career in West Virginia, and in 1985 relocated to Georgia. My experience includes teaching self-contained special education, general education, and interrelated resource. I am the proud mom of two adult children who are both following their own passions, and using their talents in organic farming and theatre and TV. My heart is in the classroom and with the exceptional children that I have the opportunity to serve each day.
