We're off to a great start!
Meet Sara Cummings and Marcy Bowdren
Hi! My name is Sara Cummings and I will be a student teacher in Mrs. Albertson's class until mid-November. I graduated from UVA in 2012 and am currently studying Elementary Education at Mary Baldwin. I am very excited to be working with the 4th grade and believe this will be the best experience to launch my teaching career. Some fun facts about me: I am originally from Fairfax, Va. and decided to stay in Charlottesville after graduating because Fairfax was too busy for me! I have a dog who was adopted as a puppy and was told would be no bigger than 50 pounds; he is now about 100! On the weekends, you can usually find me scouting out the newest restaurants that pop up in this area, reading a good book, or coming up with new ideas to spark thinking in and out of the classroom.
Hello, my name is Marcy Bowdren and I am a currently enrolled in a five-year BA/MT program at the University of Virginia. This upcoming spring, I will receive both my bachelor’s degree in sociology and my master’s degree in elementary education. So far student teaching has been so much fun! I have enjoyed getting to know your child and look forward to exploring all types of literature with them as we enter into fall. I can't wait to see everyone again at Back to School Night in September.
