Miss Theresa Haygood

   Hello!  This is my 28th year teaching at Tolbert Elementary School.  This is my 25th year in 5th grade, and I taught 4th grade for 3 years.  I've always taught science, but I've also taught some reading, language arts, math, and now in addition to teaching science, I teach Social Studies.  I graduated from Cass High School in Bartow County in 1982.  I received a Bachelor's Degree in Medical Technology (laboratory science) from the Medical College of Georgia in 1986.  I received a teaching certificate in 4-8 education from Kennesaw College in 1991, and a Masters in 4-8 Education from West Georgia College in 1996.  I currently have an Education Specialist Degree in Curriculum from Piedmont College that I received in 2007.  I've also received a science endorsement in K-5 education.  I am currently teaching 5th grade science and social studies.  I also currently volunteer on the school PTO.

   I live in Bartow County near my mom.  I have two dogs and a turtle.  I enjoy bowling on leagues, reading, watching sports and NCIS.  I still use my Medical Technology degree.  I am also employed by Wellstar Health Systems at Kennestone Hospital in the Blood Bank.  I now work some weekends and during the summer.  I've been employed there for 32 years.

   I'm looking forward to a wonderful 2018-19 school year.
