Hello! Welcome to my Webpage!


       My name is Katy Waters and I teach 1st grade at Fairmount Elementary. 


A Little About Me


          I was born and raised in Pickens County Georgia. I currently reside in Fairmount, Georgia. I graduated from Dalton State College in May of 2009 with a BSE in Early Childhood Education as well as an ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement.  I graduated from Piedmont College with my Masters degree in curriculum and instruction and will graduate with my Specialist Degree in December in the area of curriculum and leadership. I am highly qualified to teach your child . I taught for 1 year at Fairmount Elementary as an Interventionist. I spent one year teaching the ESOL program at Belwood Elementary. This is my fourth year teaching 1st grade.


A Little About My Family


           I am from a HUGE family of teachers. My husband teaches Agriculture at Red Bud Middle school and Sonoraville High School. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law both teach at Fairmount Elementary and my mom and brother both teach at Harmony Elementary in Pickens County. My husband, Matthew, and I have been married for 8 years and have two little girls, Chloe and Lily. You can usually find my family and I at a livestock show on the weekends or watching a good game of Georgia football. GO DAWGS!
