A Little About Me
Every thousand-mile journey begins with one step. (Lao Tzu) Having raised five children, I took my first step to become a teacher in 1995. I graduated with my Associate Degree when my oldest son graduated from high school. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree when my two daughters graduated from high school. Since then, my children eventually graduated into parenthood, and I graduated into 'grand' parenthood. My husband and I have eleven grandchildren. Learning to be a parent, a grandparent, and eventually, a teacher proves "There is no finish line in learning." (Carol Ann Tomlinson)
I feel very honored to have served and continue to serve the learning community of Pickens County for more than 20 years. Though I do not live in Pickens, I feel like it is my home away from home. I am very excited to meet and get to know my students. However, I am even more excited when I think about what I might learn from my students. Nothing pleases me more than to hear a student say, "Oh, don't worry Mrs. Gordy. I can help with that." I have a motto, "If it isn't fun, it doesn't get done." We work, we learn, we laugh, and we progress.
