    I am Kelly Baily, a proud member of North Hart's 5th grade team! I received my B.S. degree from Brenaue University. I have teaching certifications in early childhood and middle grades education, as well as gifted education endorsement. This is my 18th year of teaching, with the first 13 years at Hart County Middle School and 5 years here at North Hart. When I am not in school, I am a wife, mom, and grandmother who enjoys traveling, hiking, reading, and most of all, spending time with my family.

    Hi! My name is Rachel Dickerson. I am excited to be teaching 5th grade for the 2018-19 school year. This is my 16th year teaching, and 15 of them have been in Hart County (Go Dogs!). I have taught Pre-k (4), Kindergarten (5), First Grade (5), Fourth Grade (2), and starting a new experience in Fifth Grade this school year. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Education from Georgia College and State University in 2003. I also attained both my Master's Degree in 2007 and Educational Specialist Degree in 2009 from Piedmont College. I chose teh teaching profession to help make a difference in as many children's lives as possible. But in reality, I am the one who has been changed by the 350+ students that have walked through my classroom doors over the years! I am so thankful that the Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to do what I love-Teach!

    I am Tina Lorentson, a 5th grade math, science, and social studies teacher. I have taught for 11 years, all in Hart County where I am a proud high school graduate as well. This is my second year being a North Hart Navigator where I taken on the roles of being a STEAM Academy teacher, North Hart Clubs Coordinator, and STEAM Coordinator as well. I received my B.S. degree from Emmanuel College and Master's in Teacher Leadership from Columbus State University. Teaching has always been my passion and dream and now I am living it everyday. I have the best job...getting to see children learn something new every single day! While I am not at school, I am spending time with my husband, Jon, and our two children, Ryder and Tessa. We love to go on fun adventures together or just be lazy and watch a movie at home while enjoying being together as a family.

    Someone much smarter than me once said, "A good education can change anyone, a good teacher can change everything." This is a great summary of my reason why I teach. Teachers were teh determining factor of my success from a very early age. Good teachers and Jesus! I walked through the doors of my school each day from Kindergarten through 12th grade not knowing what I would go home to. School was my safe place. Good teachers taught me well, and loved me even better. Many of my students come to me the same way. This is the only thing I do exceptionally well as a teacher, love students. In doing so, I hope to change everything in a child's life. My name is Emilee Patrick. I have been teaching 5th grade at NHES for 5 years and I love what I do. My beautiful family, Ricky, Lucee, Lincoln, and Matilda, and our puppy Walter, support me in everything I do. I would not be the same person without Jesus, my family and my purpose, teaching.
