My name is Marie Roberson and I am currently a first grade teacher in Fayette County, GA. I am a product of the Fayette County school system and love being able to teach in the system that helped to mold me. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two children and two rotten dogs together.
I attended North Georgia College and State University (I just find it hard to call it University of North Georgia), where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Social Science. After college I quickly realized I wanted to enter the education field. I completed a TAPP (teacher alternative preparation program) through Clayton County Public Schools. I enjoyed my time in the county and learned the true meaning of differentiation through small group instruction while I was there.
My professional goal is to be able to support and teach other teachers on a daily basis on how to implement technology tools to increase student achievement. I am studying Instructional Technology because it excites me. It seems like the best instructional practices change minute by minute and often there is a technology piece associated with it in recent years. I want to help students succeed with the twenty-first century tools.
