    Congratulations Ms. Bailey for being selected as PES Teacher of the Year!

    Meet Ms. Bailey:

    I was raised in Dacula, Georgia, and I am a graduate of Gwinnett County Schools. My passion for teaching started at a young age, and I began working with children as a teenager. I went to college at the University of North Georgia, where I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education. From there, I went on to Brenau University, where I completed my Master’s in Early Childhood Education. This is my 8th year teaching, and my fifth year teaching 2nd grade here at Parsons. I am so excited! I have experience teaching Kindergarten through 3rd grade. 2nd grade is the PERFECT fit for me. I know where your child is coming from, and just what they need to know to continue on in 3rd grade. I hold an ESOL endorsement, a Reading Endorsement, a Gifted Endorsement, and recently earned my Math Endorsement as well.

    Outside the classroom, my passions are reading and running.  I compete in a range of races, and I am looking forward to doing more this year!  I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family, hiking, playing with my dog, Abbey, and traveling.
