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!
Davis, Brenda This is my 20th year of teaching and my 5th at Sawnee. I am a born and raised Floridian with a love for the Miami Dolphins.

I am looking forward to a great school year! 771281 email@example.com
