Dr. Andrea Walraven
Welcome! I am a Social Studies teacher, and lead Gifted teacher at SHS. This year I teach Promethean WH (10), Honors USH (11), APUSH (11), and APGOV (mixed). I love the social studies, but History in particular. I hope to instill the belief in all students that history happens everyday. Be history, live history, involve yourselves in history! One lives and dies from xxxx - xxxx years. BE THE DASH! Be a difference maker!
I hope every student who enters and exits my classroom knows that I truly care about them and their wellbeing, both in my room, and long after they've exited the halls of SHS. I firmly believe the best educators are those who go above and beyond to make a difference for students. Students volunteer their time and their attention in my room; it is my duty and passion to make the best possible use of the 90 minutes everyday.
I am married to Coach Walraven, football coach and Math teacher. We have 2 children, Ella Kate (6th grade) and Charlie (4th grade). We love traveling and showing our kids there's more to the world than Calhoun, GA. I believe you've gotta live while you're living--see, do, explore!
Please contact me at any time with questions or concerns. I welcome parental involvement and feedback. The best way to reach me is via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, but you may call the school and leave a message as well. 706-602.0320.
