All About Mrs. Gardner

  •      I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten at New Hope Elementary!  I have been teaching since 2005.  I am certified in Early Childhood Education as well as Special Education through eighth grade. I enjoy helping children discover their abilities in learning. I received my BBA degree from Brewton-Parker College, my MEd from Georgia Southern University, and my EdS degree for Nova Southeastern University. 

    I have been married to my soul mate for 34 years and we have two children and six grandchildren. We enjoy spending time with family, water sports, and attending sporting events. My hobbies include playing tennis, golf, gardening, and cooking.
