     Mrs Akers Akers, Yvonne

    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.

     Mrs Radaszewski 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!
