Mrs. Mrs. Tonya Fulton's Bio

 

 “If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can

stop you!”-Unknown

 

Welcome to my 6th Grade Social Studies class at BelAir K-8 STE(A)M School.    My name is Mrs. Tonya D. Fulton, and this is my 24th year of teaching with three of those years in Hawaii.  I am excited about this school year here at BelAir K-8 STE(A)M. During my time at Morgan Road, I was named 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year and one of the top five finalist for  Richmond County School System.  My education includes a Bachelor of Science (Paine College), Master of Sports Science (United States Sports Academy), and Education Leadership (Cambridge College).   In previous years, I worked as a coach and Business Manager, grade level chair, SACS committee, TIR for Social Studies and English Language Arts, taught 4th-9th grades, Leadership Team,  PBIS Coach, Gifted and Talented Endorsement, and completed Teacher Leaders Academy.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with your child this year.

This course is designed to educate Sixth graders the first year of a two-year World Area Studies course. Sixth grade students study Latin America, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The goal of this two-year course is to acquaint middle school students with the world in which they live. The geography domain includes both physical and human geography. The intent of the geography domain is for students to begin to grasp the importance geography plays in their everyday lives. The government/civics domain focuses on selected types of government found in the various areas so that students begin to understand the variety of governments in the world. The economics domain builds on the K-5 economics standards; however, the focus shifts from the United States to how other countries answer the basic questions of economics. The history domain focuses on major events in each region during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Building a strong learning community with parental involvement is very critical. My email address and school phone number are listed below. I encourage you to communicate with me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to a wonderful and exciting year with your child and I believe that this school year will be AWESOME as your child journey through the five strands of reading to include: phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehending literary and informational texts and become historians.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Tonya Fulton
