Mrs. Gail Schwartz
My name is Gail Schwartz & I’m so excited to be your child’s 5th grade Social Studies and Science teacher this year!
I’m originally from New York & grew up in Queens, where I met my husband. We’ve been married since 1996 & we have a daughter who was born in 2004. She graduated from Locust Grove High last year and will be attending Birmingham Southern College majoring in Stage Management & minoring in Choreography!
Some of my favorite things involve spending time with my family, drinking lots of coffee, going to amusement parks (we LOVE Universal), eating sushi, eating chocolate, watching my daughter dance, and hanging out with friends and family.
I have a Bachelors degree in Drama Studies with a concentration in Literature, as well as a Masters in Elementary Education. I’ve been in education since 1995, and have taught in New York & Georgia. I’ve been working in Henry County since 2006, and my family has lived in Henry since 1999. I’ve taught a variety of grades in elementary school, but 5th grade has always been my favorite. I have also taught all grades in middle school, and have been a middle school Social Studies teacher since 2016. I absolutely LOVE teaching our children!!! This year, I'm SUPER excited to be moving back to 5th grade, and teaching Social Studies and Science is a complete bonus. We're going to have so much fun!
I know that if we work together as a team, our students will have a successful year, and be ready for 6th grade! I expect students to give 110% of their effort in their work each day, as I do. Parents can help by checking that their child has completed work each day, staying current with grades in Infinite Campus at least weekly, and keeping in contact with our team of teachers. Together we can ensure that our scholar has a successful, enriching year!
