     Mrs. Akers Akers, Yvonne


    I have been teaching for approximately 30 years. I taught 4th grade for the last three years at Sawnee. I previously taught 5th grade in Pensacola, Florida for many years.  So this is like coming back home!  I love what I do and can’t wait to keep inspiring students through learning. I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. I moved to Florida and spent 30 years there.  I have two, adult children. My daughter still lives in Pensacola, and my son now resides in Cumming. He has been a member of the Georgia National Guard for the last six years. I love going back and visiting my Gulf of Mexico, but enjoy seeing the beautiful mountains every day.

    This is my third 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 4th and 8th 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 begin my sixth year in 4th grade with the Sawnee Family! I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and relocated to south Florida for college in 1993. In 2006, I visited Forsyth county for vacation and moved up here a few months later. I am certified in P-5, Special Education, Middle Grades (4-8), and recently obtained my Gifted Education endorsement. This school year is going to be the best ever! 4th grade rocks!

    Mrs Radaszewski Radaszewski, Kelly


    This will be my third year teaching 4th grade at Sawnee Elementary. I have a BA in Psychology from Binghamton University and a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of New Hampshire. Showing students the fun side of math is a passion of mine- and yes, I used "math" and "fun" in the same sentence. I love to learn and aim to inspire my students to do the same!
