     My name is Gretchen Stone and I am a native of West Virginia.  After graduating from high school in 1995, I moved to Macon, GA.   I began my college career at macon State College, then went on to Georgia College & State University where I earned my Bachelor's degree in elementary education.  I began my teaching career here in Crawford County Elementary in 1999.  After teaching for 10 years, I returned to school and earned a Master's degree in Reading & Literacy and then worked to complete a 6 year Specialist  (Ed.S) degree in teacher leadership from Walden University. 

     I have been teaching for 16 years.  I married to my high school sweetheart in 1998 and together we now have three great children that are 13, 10, and 7.  I love teaching, spending time with my family, going to church, all things pumpkin, and coffee!  

     It is a joy to be a first grade teacher!  It is such a magical year in elementary school.  I love watching my students light up when things "click" and they figure things out on their own.  Education is not only a profession, it is a privilege.  I take my job as an educator very seriously; it is my goal to make your child the best first grader they can be and prepare them; not only for second grade, but for their future.  I have a great love for books and try hard to ignite that same passion in my students.  I know that with effort, time, consistency, and collaboration with parents, my students will become life long learners.
