A great big congratulations goes out to our wonderful 2nd grade teacher, Tami Slaton, who is Dunwoody Elementary School's 2012-2013 Teacher of the Year.
This is Tami's 21st year of teaching in DeKalb County. She has not only worked for Dekalb, but also matriculated through the DeKalb County School system.
She attended Clark Atlanta University for her undergraduate program and
Central Michigan University for her post graduate work. Tami holds
certifications in Reading Recovery, Reading Endorsement, ESOL, and Gifted. Tami also served as grade level chair.
A personal note from Tami Slaton:
I firmly believe that all students bring various gifts to the learning process. I enjoy watching students discover the gifts that they possess within themselves. I believe that the workshop approach to teaching allows me to be a a facilitator of learning that aids in this process of development.
In my leisure time I enjoy reading and scrapbooking. I have been married for 12 years to my husband.
