Hello! My name is Tim Gilreath. I am from Gordon County having lived in the Sonoraville area as a child. I attended Sonoraville Elementary School, Ashworth Middle School, Calhoun High School and then transferred to Gordon Central High School as a senior and was part of the Charter Class. I am very excited to be part of the Second Grade team at Belwood! I have worked with ALL age and grade levels from Kindergarten to High School Seniors. I have taught all subjects including K-6 Music Appreciation and Chorus. I currently live in Calhoun with my wife, Wendy, and have four children: Lindsay, Molly, Owen, DJ (son-in-law), and one granddaughter, Abigail. Our family is big into helping and supporting animals and currently we have 3 dogs, 1 cat, and 5 guinea pigs at our house. The guinea pigs are also members of our classroom at Belwood. One to three of them will travel with me to the class each day taking turns being our class pet(s)!
I inherited a family business in the early 2000's, but quickly discovered my true love was for teaching. I returned to school and completed my Master of Arts in Teaching degree in 2014. I have taught my entire life, whether in the private or public sector. I love to learn, and work to make learning simple for my students. I believe we can have fun while learning and investigating the world around us.
I look forward to creating a love of learning in my students and sending them on with a desire to succeed!
