I lived 30 years in Florida before moving to Georgia. I have family in this area and am looking forward to spending time with them. I am originally from Ohio but have lived in the south for over 30 years.
I am very passionate about the field of education. I constantly look for ways to lead students to their own discoveries whether using technology or a great piece of literature. I encourage analytical thinking, as well as creative thought. I am always learning and I encourage my students to do the same.

This is my second year teaching at Sawnee! I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Brenau University and a bachelor's degree in Finance from NGCSU which I utilized as a commercial credit analyst for nearly 14 years. I grew up in Forsyth County and graduated from NFHS. I am married to my high school sweetheart and best friend, Ben. We have two awesome kids together who are in the 3rd and 7th grades in Forsyth County Schools. As a life-long learner, I look forward to working with my students to help motivate and inspire them to learn new things every day. I am excited to teach 4th grade Math and Science at Sawnee Elementary School!

Radaszewski, Kelly I earned my Masters in Elementary Education from the University of New Hampshire in 2000. I have taught pre-K, 1st, 2nd, and spent 6 years teaching 3rd grade in a virtual public school. This will be my second year teaching 4th grade at Sawnee Elementary. Showing students the fun side of math is a passion of mine- and yes, I used "math" and "fun" in the same sentence.
Originally from New York, I have also lived in Maine, New Hampshire, and South Carolina before making Cumming my home for the last 12 years. My husband and I have four kids- two sons who graduated in 2018 and two daughters who both attend North Forsyth HS as a senior and a freshman. I am excited to meet my new class of 4th graders!
