Mrs. Janet Kornegay
I am so excited to be a member of the GSES Fifth Grade Team. I am the language arts instructor partnered with Mrs. Craig, who teaches math, science and social studies. In Tennessee, I taught special education, including gifted students, for fifteen years, and then moved to fifth grade for seventeen more. After a few years of retirement, I realized I missed the joy of student interactions, so I reentered the workforce here at GSES.
Learning with fifth grade students is wonderfully engaging. I look forward to watching my students grow academically and personally while preparing them for sixth grade.
I am a proud graduate of Purdue University where I earned both my BS and MS degrees. Adding the Educational Specialist degree in Curriculum and Supervision, I also am certified as an administrator in Tennessee.
My husband and I live on Plash Island and share our home with our dog, Baxter, and cat, Anni. Our son, his wife, and our grandchildren live here in Gulf Shores. When not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, boating, watching college sports, and dreaming up fun things we can accomplish in fifth grade.
