Mrs. Renae Petty
Hello, my name is Renae Petty. I want to share a few personal things about myself, my preparation and my enthusiasm for teaching. I’ve been married now for over twenty years to Thomas A. Petty. I look forward to having 22 new babies every year. I love watching the students as they grasp new concept.
I have been teaching for over twenty years. I have taught all of these years here at Fairmount. I have taught pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first grade. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Georgia. I earned my Master of Arts in Education degree from Piedmont College. I attend training annually to remain highly trained and qualified to teach.
I grew up in Gordon County and attended Red Bud School all twelve years. After graduation from the University of Georgia I moved back to Gordon County and have lived here to this day. I love the city of Fairmount and the friendly people who live here. I still remember the first day I walked into the school building and it felt like Red Bud did when I was little, like coming home. I work with Mrs. Denise Childers. She is a wonderful assistant to me in our classroom.
Studies have show that the success of the student is closely correlated to the involvement of the student’s family. I believe that together we will have a wonderful year that is full of learning. Please feel free to call me at the school if you have any questions or concerns. You may have to leave a voice mail. My extension is 2134. If you need to speak directly to me then you will want to call after 2:40p.m. I’m usually at the school until 4:00p.m. on most days.
