Meet Mrs. WilliamsI would like to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me. This year is my 12th and a 1/2 year as a teacher. I graduated from The University of West Georgia in the fall of 2005. I began my career in education straight out of college in the middle of the year as a Kindergarten teacher in the county school system. I taught Kindergarten for half of a year and then transferred to Calhoun Primary School where I have been teaching first grade for 12 years. I am an alumna of Calhoun City Schools. I was born and raised in Calhoun and graduated from Calhoun High School in 2001.
My husband, Brandon, and I live in Calhoun with our little girl Keylee Noe Williams and little boy Kason Brantlee Williams. Our daughter is 8 years old and our son is 4 years old. They are the light of our lives. We love Calhoun because it has a great family atmosphere and we feel that it is the best community in which to raise our children. We feel that Calhoun City Schools is a fantastic school system and we are honored to have Keylee in first grade this year. I am so excited that she will be in first grade with me. I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy teaching children, reading, decorating, organizing, artsy projects, sports, and much more.
I look forward to getting to know your child and your family. We are going to have a WONDERFUL year. Thank you for sharing your child with me.
Class IntroductionThe beginning of a new school year is such an exciting time! I look forward to working with your child this year. First grade is such a special year for the children and their parents as well as very challenging and a big transition for the former kindergarten students. In first grade, we teach units based on the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards. In first grade, we will continue teaching Reading, English/Language Arts, Writing, and Math this year. We are excited to introduce a new Phonics program in grade K-2nd.
English Language Arts: Our ELA units are based on Georgia Standards of Excellence to focus on different genres with grammar and writing embedded.Writing: Our writing units are based on the Lucy Caulkins series.
Math: Students will participate in a variety of Math Units. These units target our Georgia Standards of Excellence while incorporating Math Workshop, centers, and number corner.
Guided Reading: We have guided reading groups daily that target your child’s individual reading needs.
I strive to instill a love of learning in my students that will last throughout their life. If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at the school by calling (706) 629-8323 or drop me a note. Together, we will make this one of your child’s best years in school.
