• Welcome to Sixth Grade Math!  My name is Lorie Dillard.  This is my first year at GSIC.  I started teaching over thirty years ago in Richmond County.  I taught for twelve years in the county, then decided to stay at home with my children.  I did not stay there very long.  I got a part time job teaching at Mother's Day Out, then I was offered a full time teaching job at a private school where my children could attend.  After prayerful consideration, i left that job to homeschool my children for the next seven years.  We had a great time being together, but I knew I couldn't teach the high school subjects that my son needed.  I planned to send him back to the private school for high school and continue home schooling my daughter.  God had other plans.  When we went for registration, I was offered a job.  I taught fourth grade for the next ten years there, when God called me to come to GSIC.  

    There have been a lot of changes in my life.  I had to get my Middle Grades Math added to my certificate.  I bought a new car for my new school ride.  i now have to work with 92 sixth grade students instead of 36 fourth grade students.  I am learning al lot about all of my students and I am enjoyiing to learn new things along with them.  It has been an exciting few months and I looked forward to many years here until God has a new plan for me.
