Welcome to Ms. Chryssochoos'
First Grade Class Web Page!
Hello! My name is Ms. Chryssochoos. I attended Allgood Elementary School, Redan High School, The University of Georgia (A.B.), Georgia State University (M.S.), Mercer Unversity (Teacher Certification Program), Nova Southeastern University (Ed.S), and completed my gifted education endorsement program. I come from a family of educators. My father was a professor in the business school at Georgia State University. My oldest sister retired from Gwinnett County Schools and served as a parapro, first grade teacher, and assistant principal. My other sister teaches first grade in a Cobb County elementary school. My brother, a Georgia Tech graduate, is employed with Newport News Shipbuilding. He manages projects and works with ship design with the United States Navy.
I have three children. My daughter, Daria, is a senior in the Honor's Program at the University of Georgia. She is studying political science and public adminsitration and will graduate with a joint bachelors and masters degree in December 2019. My son, Alex, is a sophomore at Kennesaw State University and plans to major in statistics. My youngest son, Philip, is a 9th grader at Union Grove HighSchool. He plays lacrosse for the Henry County Wolverines as well as the Atlanta Coyotes, a competitive summer team.
Teaching is a second career for me. I began teaching in Henry County in 2003, and I have been here at Timber Ridge Elementary since it opened in 2006. Meeting my new students at the beginning of each year is an exciting time for me. I enjoy seeing children learn and grow. Welcome to my first grade classroom!
