Stephanie Gainey - barthmaier@fultonschools.orghttp://gaineysae@weebly.com

My name is Stephanie Gainey and I grew up in Roswell, GA.  I received my Bachelors Degree in 2007 from Georgia Southern University.  After graduating, I taught second grade at Flat Shoals Elementary in Rockdale County for five years.  I spent the last two years discovering what the corporate world is like and decided I could not imagine spending my life anywhere else but teaching.  I love learning and I am so excited to be coming back to a career I love!

I have two brothers.  My older brother is 31 and he lives in Roswell with his wife and two children.  My younger brother is 28 and lives in Buckhead.  I am engaged and getting married in September.  My husband’s name is Matt and he works for Jamestown Properties.  We have a black dog named Izzie. She is a Cockapoo and just turned a year old in December.  We enjoy being active and spending time outdoors.  We also love spending time with our friends and family. 

I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and thrilled to become a part of the SAE family!

My name is Connie McLaughlin, and this is my second full year teaching second grade.  I began teaching at Sweet Apple in January 2013, and I am very excited for the coming year. 

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State University and my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from the same university.  I taught at a preschool for one year, and then I began teaching fourth grade in central Illinois.  I taught fourth grade for 11 1/2 years, and after my son was born, we moved to the Chicago area and I stayed home to take care of him.  We moved to Alpharetta in 2009, and I began volunteering at my son's school and later started substitute teaching at Alpharetta Elementary and Sweet Apple.  Even though I am from Illinois, I LOVE living in Georgia and do not miss the cold and snowy winters in the Midwest!

In my free time, I enjoy taking short weekend trips with my husband and son, Kyle. We frequently explore new cities in the South, since so many places are new to us. I also enjoy shopping, particularly at the mall, but you may run into me at Target, as well.  I like going for walks, listening to my ipod, playing with my puppy, going out to dinner, being with my friends, and teaching.  

I look forward to another great year of teaching at Sweet Apple!
