My name is Gentry Sanford, and I am a 2nd grade ELA teacher. This is my tenth year of teaching in Polk School District.  I absolutely love to teach reading! I always enjoy the challenge of getting students and pushing them as far as they can go. 

My Philosophy that I live by in my classroom developed while earning my udergrad at Jacksonville State University. It was from a dear teacher, who lost her battle to cancer, but her words still inspire me.

Children and learning are much like getting into a house. Sometimes you go through the front door, other times you enter through the back door, and there are times and occasions you have to enter through a window. The POINT is you enter the house. The same applies to students no matter what angle a teacher has to take, children have the ability to learn. It is our job to give them the tools to do just that.

 

Fun Fact: The Class of 2017 was my first class of 2nd graders that are now graduating!!!
