About Me

Hello and welcome!  My name is Patsy Tomlin Black and this is my third year teaching at Gaines Elementary.  I have been an educator for 15 years and every day is an adventure!

Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in business and gained a interest in education when my daughter started school. I have an Associates Degree in Business Management, a Bachelor's Degree in Education, a Master's Degree in Reading, and a Specialist's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

I grew up in Hartwell, GA and I currently reside in Elberton. I have one daughter, Casey, and she is a radiographer technician in Hilton Head, SC. My hobbies include reading, baking, and hanging out with my friends/family.
