Mrs. Rena Vaughan
I am Rena Vaughan and I would like to welcome you to First Grade! I am so excited to be your child's teacher for a such a critical year in their education!
I graduated from Kennesaw College and then received my Master's Degree from Berry College. This will be my 36th year teaching which means I STILL love my job! I have taught at Fairmount Elementary, Berry College Early Learning Center, W.L. Swain and Cartersville Primary.
I have been married to my husband, Steve, for 38 years. We have two great kids, who both graduated from CHS. Stephen, 28, graduated from Western Illinois, and is currently working for the USDA as a Food Safety Inspector. His wife, Nicole, is a pharmacist and we are so lucky to have her in our family! Sarah Margaret, 24, majored in Psychology and will begin working on her Master's Degree this Fall. She will be getting a degree in Special Education. She is currently working as a para-pro here at CPS!
I still find my job challenging, rewarding and enjoyable. One of my greatest joys is being able to teach children to read. I love coming to work and can promise you that I strive to teach each child in my room as if they were my own.
I believe students can and will grow academicallly if they are challenged and are in an environment where they are loved. That is my goal for your child. Thank you for your support this year.
