    My name is Gina Eigenauer and I have been teaching since 1995. I taught for 10 years in Florida and will enter my 28th year here in Forsyth County. My experience has been in second, third, and fourth grades. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Florida Atlantic University and my Master’s degree in Teaching/Learning with Leadership at Walden University. Teaching is truly my passion, as it is the only career I ever wanted to do. My students and parents become my family, and I am blessed to call myself an educator.

    I'm thrilled to be teaching at Poole's Mill Elementary as a 3rd grade teacher. I love teaching math and science! Reading is one of my favorite hobbies. My favorite authors are Cynthia Rylant, Patricia Polacco, and Jerry Palotta.

I have two grown sons and a sweet Golden Retriever named Kiba! I'm excited about 3rd grade this year!
