All About Ms. Bolding

Hi!  My name is Jill Bolding and I have been teaching here in Oconee County since 1997.   I began my teaching career in 1992 and have also lived and taught in two other states (Florida and Louisiana).  Wow!!  How time flies when you are having fun!  :) I am very excited and feel lucky to be a part of Colham Ferry Elementary School.  I love working with children.

A little about myself... I was born and raised in sunny Florida and definitely have sand between my toes! I still have family down there and visit as much as I can!  I have also lived in Louisiana. I visited my brother and fell in love with the place, so I moved there after I graduated from college to begin my career in education.  I attended Florida State University, obtaining my BA in Education.  Throughout my career, I have obtained my MA in Counseling from Louisiana Tech and my EdS in Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University. I am also certified in gifted education.

I have one wonderful son who attends the University of North Georgia.  We both love the beach and traveling.  Our favorite things to do are scuba diving and offshore fishing.  We try to do both when we travel to different beaches.  I have one dog, Cayman, two cats that adopted me, Tigger and OC plus one fish, Fin. One thing that is unique about me is that I am allergic to cold.  It's called  cold uticaria so I have to be careful and watch cold temperatures.
