Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your desire to learn more about our class! 
        I have been married to my husband, James, for almost 21 years!  Whew... :-)  We have two sons.  One is an 9th grader and the other is in 6th grade.  We live in Verona on a piece of property that has been in our family for four generations! My mother went to Verona, I went to Verona, and my dream when earning my degree was to teach at Verona. I have been blessed to teach here with such great colleagues! Verona is a great school! 
        Originally, I graduated from Averett College in 1996, earning a Bachelor's in Business Administration and Equestrian Studies.  Due to various changes in my life, I decided to go back to school in 2011.  I attended Liberty University where I completed my Masters in Teaching in Elementary Education.  
      My teaching career began many years ago, however.  I spent years teaching horseback riding lessons and Sunday school.  Since 2011, I have worked at Verona Elementary and Clymore Elementary as a substitute teacher.  I was also the Artist in Residence for the first half of the 2013-2014 school year at Verona Elementary.  Then, I completed my licensure by student teaching the final half of the same year in 5th grade at Verona.  
        I am so excited to begin my third year with a full-time classroom, and I am so thankful that your student is part of it!  It's always exciting to start a new year, and I am excited to get to know all of my students and their families more.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at school at (540)248-0141 or email me at coleman.ec@augusta.k12.va.us .
