Mrs. Cheryl Winsor

A little about me:  I am originally from Florida and moved to Georgia in 1998.  I currently reside in McDonough with my wonderful husband and have two beautiful grown children--a daughter who is a high school math teacher, and a son who is a resident director at one of our state universities.  When I am not at school, you can find me reading, gardening, baking, spending time with family and friends, exploring new places around Georgia, or at my church.

Although I have been teaching for as long as I can remember, I actually started out as a legal secretary, became a full-time mommy, and then became a paraprofessional (teaching assistant) and worked with special education students in Florida and later with 1st grade at Morrow Elementary in Clayton County.  I eventually earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education at Mercer University and began teaching 3rd grade at Morrow Elementary. I moved to Henry County schools in 2006 and taught 1st grade at Unity Grove Elementary until Rock Spring Elementary opened in 2008.  I was a 1st grade teacher at RSE until I began teaching in the Early Intervention Program (EIP) in the fall of 2013.  I  love working with small groups of students in reading & math through the EIP program! 

My philosophy of teaching can be summed up by one of my favorite quotes: "I cannot teach anyone anthing.  I can only make them think." (Socrates)  Every day I attempt to do this by providing high expectations for all students and then giving them the support they need to reach those expectations. I believe it is a teacher's responsibility to foster a love of learning in all children by instilling the belief they can achieve those high expectations, become life-long learners, and do great things as long as they keep an "I CAN" attitude. I count it a privilege & a blessing to work with our fantastic students and staff here at Rock Spring!  Go ROADRUNNERS!!
