Hello and Welcome to 1st Grade!! I am so excited to start out another year here at Jackson Elementary. My name is Cherelia James and I will be your child’s first grade teacher this year. To have a place of growing knowledge and acceptance is what I want for my classroom. I would hope that we will be able to work towards a successful year together.

  I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and raised in Warner Robins, Georgia. I attended Fort Valley State University. I am an only child, however, I am the oldest of twenty-one cousins. My family is large and very close. I have two children. Nathanael, is sixteen and Rebecca is thirteen. I was blessed to be able to teach both of my children to read and to home school my son for five years. I love reading and gardening. Chocolate has always been a close friend of mine. The smell of peaches makes me love being a southern girl and sweet tea is nectar from the gods. I believe in rooting for the home team. I’m a Falcons, Braves and Hawks fan. My favorite holidays are Thanksgiving and the 4th of July. Teaching has always been a passion for me. I have a love for learning and I would hope that my students would also learn to love learning as much as I do.

By making my classroom a safe, fun and disciplined place for my students, I would hope that they will enjoy coming to my classroom and learning something new every day. I feel that all children are different and require specific attention and affection for them to flourish. I will strive to be that for each of my students; an educator who loves each child that walks in her door and gives each of them not only an education, but a passion to learn.
