Mrs. Carolyn Fortson

I am thrilled to spend this fourth grade year with you! It is going to be a year full of learning, fun and adventures.

My wonderful husband {Sam} and I have two little girls {Georgia, almost 6} and {Maisie, almost 5} and a sweet baby boy {Luke, 6 months}. They are a lot of fun, and I enjoyed getting to spend the summer with them. In my free time, I love reading, crafting and spending time outdoors.

I grew up in Chantilly, Virginia with my parents, younger sister, and two younger brothers. I went to college at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

After graduating, I taught fourth grade right outside of Washington, D.C for three years before my husband’s job moved us to West Virginia. There, I taught fourth grade for a year. We then moved to the Pittsburgh area, and I taught third and fourth grades in Pittsburgh. In 2016, I was fortunate enough to become part of the Streams family. I spent some time in second and first grades as a Long Term substitute during the 2016-2017 school year, and then taught second grade for two years. I taught third grade for two years, and am excited to learn in fourth grade with your child this year :) 

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions. I look forward to getting to know you this year!
