My experience is mostly in teaching science in 5th grade.  I've taught several years of reading, language arts, and social studies in addition to teaching science.  I taught 1 1/2 years of math, until we departmentalized math.  This will be my 24th year in 5th grade.


My name is Theresa Haygood.  This is my 27th year of teaching at Tolbert.  I've always taught science.  In addition to science, I will be teaching social studies.  My undergraduate degree is in Medical Technology (laboratory science) from the Medical College of Georgia.  I have a teaching certificate from Kennesaw State University, a Master's Degree in Education from West Georgia, and an Education Specialist Degree from Piedmont College.  I have received my science endorsement, and I attended a STEM education academy in the past.  I enjoy bowling, reading, gardening, and watching sports.  I have three dogs and a turtle.
