Introduction: My name is Christy Scarborough and I just completed my 26th year in public education. I taught Pre-K for one year at David Perdue Elementary School. I also taught Kindergerten for 18 years both at David Perdue Elementary and Lake Joy Primary. My other experience is in Special Education and I taught for 4 years in both Houston County and Pulaski County. I currently teach 2nd grade at Lake Joy Primary and this is my 4th year. I have 3 children, Bailey age 22, Cole age 20, and Callie age 16. All three of my kids are products of the Houston County school system. We live in Houston County as well. I also have a precious grandbaby named Emory.
College/Universities and Degrees: I earned my Bachelors Degree in 1994 with dual certifications in Special Education from Georgia Southwestern University in Americus Georgia. I also attended Georgia College and State University wheere I earned my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education in 1999. Then in 2003, I completed my Specialist Degree in Early Childhood Education from Troy State University.
My Philosphy: My teaching philosphy is very simple. In my classroom , I first build a relationship with each child and show them love and compassion. All children naturally want to learn, but learning does not look the same for everyone nor does it come at the same pace. Teaching allows me to open up new worlds for my students and to watch them grow as learners. We cannot do what we have always done, but make we can make changes, try new things, and promote learning for everyone.
