Mrs. Lucretia S. Cantrell, Ed.S.
Welcome to Kindergarten!! I am so excited about our upcoming school year and expecting great things from our classroom.
I would like to share my qualifications and some personal information. This will be my 27th year teaching in Gordon County Schools! I am a lifelong resident of Gordon County and a product of Gordon County Schools. I even attended Tolbert Elementary as a child! I am married to Al Cantrell and we have two sons, Clay and Will. Clay turned seventeen in November 2018 and is in eleventh grade. Will turned 11 years old in early January 2019 and is in fifth grade.They both attend Gordon County Schools.
My parents are Hilda Stanfield and the late Lynn Stanfield. I hold a current L-6 teaching certificate with a TSS (Teacher Support Specialist) endorsement and I am certified to teach Pre-K - 5th grade in all subjects and middle grade reading. I have a Bachelor of Science in Education in early childhood education from the University of Georgia, a Masters in Education in elementary education from Berry College, and an Educational Specialist degree in administration from Lincoln Memorial University. Therefore, I meet the No Child Left Behind requirements of being highly qualified. I was honored to be named Belwood Elementary’s Teacher of the Year for 1992-1993 by my peers. I spent 17 years at Belwood Elementary, four years at Sonoraville Elementary , and this is my sixth year at Tolbert Elementary School. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and third grade.
Parapro- Mrs. Amanda Fain is our class paraprofessional. She will be in the room daily. She is married and has two children.
I am pleased to have your child in my class and I look forward to an open line of communication between us. Please feel free to contact me by note, phone, or email.
