Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year, Laura Sciacca! Ms. Sciacca has taught first grade here since joining us in 2017. She holds a bachelor's degree in sociology from Saint Anselm College and a master's degree in education from Cambridge College and has been teaching primary grades since 2002. Ms. Sciacca believes, "every child can learn and that every child has a right to a safe, secure and positive learning environment."
Ms. Sciacca lives in Gwinnett with her husband and two children. As a cancer survivor, she supports the Emory Winship 5k with Team Sciacca Strong and our BES Relay for Life team to promote cancer research. Additionally, she supports the Autism Speaks Walk in honor of her son, a Gwinnett County first grade student.
We are so proud to have Ms. Sciacca representing us this year!
