Ms. Shawna McGrath

     I am Shawna McGrath.  I teach 3rd grade at Rocky Branch.  I have been teaching for 25 years. I have been at Rocky Branch for ten years.  I began my teaching career in Cobb County. I moved to the Watkinsville in 1998.   I have one daughter, Natalie, who is a Senior at North Oconee.

    I enjoy gardening, spending time with family, and all things outdoors.  In all my free time,  I like to work on projects that involve giving back, ending childhood hunger, and creating garden projects. I am actively involved at Cornerstone Church in Athens.   

    I am the facilitator of two after school programs, Gardening With A Purpose and Cooking With A Purpose.  Each of these program focus on giving back to our community.  Our purpose is to help put an end to childhood hunger one garden at a time.  All of our garden produce at Rocky Branch is donated to families in need at our school.  Come check out our gardens at our school!
