My name is Mary Ivie and I am delighted to be your Math and Social Studies teacher this year! I love being in the classroom and I can't wait to see what we learn from each other!
    I have been teaching for 24 years. I taught for 13 years in Newton County.  Before that I taught in Jackson County and Franklin County. I have taught  every elementary grade level with the exception of  Kindergarten and 3rd. I graduated from the University of Georgia with my BSED. I earned my MSED from Piedmont College and my EDS from Lincoln University.
    My husband, Larry, and I have been married for 34 years. He is also an educator.  He teaches 7th grade  at Locust Grove Middle School. We have four children; Austin (26), Michaella (23), Hannah (20), and Philip (18).   
    I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade and I promise to not only teach your children but to love and look out for them while they are at school.  I know we are going to have a wonderful year!
