Welcome to my teacher page! I am ToBorsha Sweeney and I teach 3rd grade at Athens Elementary! Before becoming a Golden Eagle, I previously taught Kindergarten in Huntsville City Schools.
I attended Calhoun Community College and received an A.A. in English. I attained my B.S. in education from the wonderful Athens State University and I'm certified to teach K-6 grades. I am currently pursuing a masters degree in school counseling at UNA. I live in Decatur, Al with my husband, 12 year old stepson, and our cat. I love God, food, traveling, music, reading, and writing!
I have always had a heart for the youth and felt that education could provide me the opportunity to make a difference in their lives. I have learned that great teachers don't just educate. They motivate! They inspire! They create! They look past the child's external limitations and draw out potential he or she didn't even know was within. I have experienced this myself with teachers and professors I have had throughout my own education. I strive to give my students those same things that were given to me to help me rise above my circumstances and get to where I am today! If I can make a difference in just one, my work is not in vain!
