     Mrs Coram  Coram, Kyla

    I am very excited for another wonderful year at Sawnee teaching 5th grade ELA. I studied business management and marketing at Georgia Tech, but transferred to my lifelong love of teaching as a second career in 2013 in Gwinnett County. I also teach English to children in China through an online learning program—I even had the privilege of traveling to China in 2018 to meet with some of my students (did I mention I love to travel?!). My husband, our two girls (both of which attend Sawnee), a dog and a cat round out our happy little family. I am ready to have fun and learn a lot from/with your children!

    I am so excited to be beginning my fourth year at Sawnee Elementary! This is my 8th year teaching 5th grade, and my fourth year teaching 5th grade math. I LOVE math! I am married to Mike and have 3 children: a daughter in 9th grade at Central, a son in 7th grade at Otwell, and a son in 4th grade at Sawnee. We love to spend our free time out on the lake or traveling to the beach. I am looking forward to another fabulous year!

      Moody, Beth

     I am very excited to join the 5th grade team at Sawnee as a science and social studies teacher. This year will be my 19th year teaching! For the past 15 years, I taught gifted education grades K-5 in St. Marys, GA. I earned my undergraduate degree from Mercer University, my master's degree from Armstrong State University, and my doctoral degree from Valdosta State University.  I have been married for 24 years and have three daughters: Josie (20), Abigail (18), and Stella (12).  In my spare time, I enjoy running, listening to podcasts, reading, and spending Saturdays at the soccer field! I can't wait to get the 2019-2020 school year started and look forward to a great year!
