Dear Families,

First grade is a very exciting time for your child. It is a big step in becoming a life-long learner. You’ll be amazed at the growth your child will make this year. I want your child to love to come to school and to love learning.

This is my third year at Holsenbeck Elementary School. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education, and I am working on my Masters degree. I’ve been working with children for over 10 years. I have two children of my own and I have previously been a foster parent. My family moved to Oconee County four years ago from Wisconsin. My past work experience includes Head Start Preschool, after-school programs, and two years as an elementary school library assistant. I have a passion for teaching young children how to read.

Please feel free to contact me anytime. You may email me at addie.roberts@barrow.k12.ga.us. I will try to check my email once during the school day and once at night. Thank you for trusting me with the care and education of your child. This year will be their best year yet!
