    Christy Mesa


    I am so excited to be starting my 14th year of teaching. After many years of working in  accounting, I decided I wanted to give back to the community and went back to school. I earned a master's in teaching at Piedmont College. My experience includes ten years teaching fourth grade, one year teaching third grade, and  three years teaching second grade. I am married to a wonderful husband of 26 years, and we have three college age children. My son attends Georgia Tech, his twin sister attends Valdosta University, and my youngest daughter attends Kennesaw State University.
