• Hello! My name is Mrs. Lora Golden, and I am teaching 9th and 10th grade English Language Arts here at GSIC. I have previously taught 6th grade at Thomson McDuffie Middle School and 8th grade at GSIC for 3 years. I earned my Bachelor of Arts for English and Secondary Education from Augusta University in 2017, and I graduated with my Masters of Curriculum and Instruction in August 2020. I have loved reading since I was a young child, and I love to foster the same passion for reading and writing in young people!

    Some of my favorite books include:

    • "The Tale of Despereaux" by Kate DiCamillo
    • The "Harry Potter" series by JK Rowling
    • "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen
    • "The Life of Pi" by Yann Martel
    • "Calvin and Hobbes" by Bill Watterson

    I am excited to teach Literature and Composition this year at GSIC, and I look forward to helping my students grow in terms of their reading, writing, and speaking skills. My classes will require students to be dedicated and active learners, and I'm sure that they will rise to the task!

    The best way to reach me is through e-mail at lgolden@gsiccharter.education. I look forward to a great year!
