Ms. Victoria Wynne
Ms. Wynne has been teaching since 2004. But she didn't arrive to education by a traditional route. Her original career goal was to work in the field of mental and emotional health with children. But when she took her first job as a special education paraprofessional out of college, she knew she had to find a way to become a certified teacher. She switched her masters degree goal to education, and she hasn't looked back. For most of her early years, she taught 3rd and 5th grades. Then she ran a computer lab where students received interventions and remediation in reading and math. Her most recent position was as a STEAM educator for an entire elementary school in Clarke County. She is ready to be a part of Oconee Schools, especially since she gets to continue working in STEAM education and start a new chapter in gifted education.
In her free time, Ms. Wynne enjoys hiking, backpacking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her daughter. Manatees are her favorite animal. A hot cup of tea is the perfect way to start her mornings. She's passionate about science and science education, so it wouldn't be strange to see her "nerding out" over experiments, scientific research, or random factoids. Her favorite part of being a teacher? Seeing her students get excited over what they've learned.
