    Gresham Bolding, Lori

    This is my 19th year teaching. I went to college at Oglethorpe University, Gainesville College, Georgia State University, and Walden University. I am currently pursuing my doctorate. If I wasn’t a teacher, I would be a photographer. The best thing about teaching is watching children grow and learn to read. I love teaching first grade.

     Gresham Roper, Cole

    I attended Sawnee as a child and know what a wonderful place it is to begin your education. I graduated from Gainesville State College in 2012. This will be my fifth year teaching. Through my experiences I have found every child is unique and special in their own way. My husband and I have a son and a daughter. We enjoy living and working in the Sawnee community. I can not wait to meet my students!
