Ms. Lindy Gayton
Hello, My name is Lindy Gayton. I have been a paraprofessional for the last four years with Polk School District at RMS. This is my first year teaching and my first year at Van Wert Elementary. I live in Rockmart and I have three amazing sons. I have an 18 year old that graduated this past year 2020. I have an 8th grader , and I have a fifth grader. I am so excited to be part of the VWES family. IT IS GONNA BE AN EPIC YEAR!!!!
I believe that all children have the capability to learn given the opportunity and encouragement. Students need consistency, and a positive learning environment that gives them the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, emotionally and socially while feeling safe and secure. All students learn differently, and it is the teacher’s job to make sure that the right strategies are used to help each student succeed. Teaching is my passion and I believe that it is a calling.
