I am Mary Blaine Formby. I have been teaching for 12 years. I have an Educational Specialist degree in brain based learning and curriculum development. I currently teach fourth grade math. I am originally from Albertville, Alabama, but I moved to Rockmart when I accepted a teaching position at Goodyear Elementary. I have taught first, third, and fourth grades. I have the most experience in fourth grade. Please don't hesitate to call, e-mail, or send a note in the agenda. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
My goal is for every student to walk in my classroom and have the best day possible every day! I understand that not every student understands or likes math. I understand that math is confusing for some students. I was that student! When I was in elementary school I did not like math at all! However, in middle school I had a great teacher who took me under her wing and helped me be a more confident math student. I want to be able to help students the way my teacher helped me. Parents and students please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions about what is going on in my math class.
I have planning time every day from 8:55-9:45. I will have meetings during this time through out the year, but I will get with you whenever possible to discuss your child's progress in Math. All of the best ways to contact me are listed at the top of the page. I am looking forward to a great year!
