Mrs. Adam

My name is Mary Catherine Adam and I am very excited to be teaching first grade at Midway Elementary again this year. I graduated from the University of Georgia where I earned my degree in Early Childhood Education with a math endorsement. Then I received my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction a few years later. I have been teaching for 13 years, all in first grade! I consider it my passion to build a strong foundation of learning for my young students, inspiring them to be lifelong learners while forming close relationships. I enjoy spending time with my family at the greenway and going to the beach in Destin. I also love cooking, running, and gardening. I look forward to new learning adventures with my first graders this year!

I am so excited to be teaching First Grade at Midway Elementary! This will be my second year at Midway, but my 24th year of teaching either Kindergarten or First Grade. I am a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and I received my Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia as well as my Math Endorsement. My goal is for your children to leave my classroom with a love for learning and a love for school. I believe that they will thrive in an environment where they are valued and, with that in mind, I will strive to make sure that each child has a special place in our classroom.

When I’m not teaching I enjoy reading, going to the movies, and spending time with my husband, son, and daughter. This is going to be a year where we are all learning a lot and I really look forward to working with you and your children!

I am so excited to be a new member of the Midway family this year! I graduated with an Associate's Degree from Young Harris College, a duel degree in General and Special Education from The University of North Georgia. Then, I continued my education and received my Master's Degree in Education from Piedmont College. I taught first grade for three years at Shiloh Point Elementary and third grade for four years in Cherokee County. I am thrilled to be starting my eighth year of teaching back in first grade here at Midway Elmentary! My spare time is spent outdoors with my husband, Grey. We enjoy hikes, board games, and spending time with our fun and wild nephews. I believe that every child has the right to learn in their own way using technology tools. I think kids learn best when they make learning goals in order to be in charge of their own personal academic growth. This allows them to enjoy their success, and I love celebrating that success and achievements with my students! I look forward to meeting each of you and being a part of your child's first grade year.

I am very excited to be teaching First Grade at Midway Elementary! I am looking forward to being your child's First Grade teacher this year. I am a graduate of Georgia State University, have a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood from the University of West Georgia, and have a Math Endorsement. This is my 24th year of teaching. I have taught Third Grade, Kindergarten, Fourth and Fifth Grade Reading and Math, and this is my eleventh year in First Grade. My approach to education is based on my sincere interest in the children, seeing them grow and develop as individuals, and sharing with them my enthusiasm for learning. It is my philosophy to look for the best in students, and to do whatever is necessary to help them develop a love for lifelong learning. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my two sons, and my little puppy. This is going to be a great year!
