Ms. Mona Gilreath
Welcome to my teacher page! This is my 26th year teaching, and all of these have been in Gordon County Schools. I began my career as an 8th grade language arts teacher at Sonoraville East Middle School before transferring to 5th grade at FES. Since then, I've taught grades 2 through five. This is my third year teaching 2nd grade, and I love this age group!
My educational background includes an Associates in Arts from Reinhardt College, a B. A. in English from North Georgia College & University, a Masters in English Education from Piedmont College, and an Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College. I'm also a 1980 graduate of Fairmount High School and Teacher of the Year for FES for the 2011-2012 school year.
I currently reside in a wildlife sanctuary in Ellijay and enjoy nature photography, container gardening, writing poetry and prose, and spending time with family and friends. I have two sons and a three-year-old grandson.
