Welcome to 6th grade. It is my absolute pleasure to be your child’s Science teacher. I am confident that we will have a very positive and successful school year. It is my objective to provide all of my students with an academically challenging, yet fun, experience in my classroom. Each and every day I will aim to inspire and enrich their minds. I look forward to teaching and getting to know your child as we embark on this wonderful journey of learning.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Tonya Bracy. This is my 11th year teaching 6th grade Science at Long Middle School. I graduated from Northeastern Technical College with an Associate in Arts Degree. I received my professional teacher training and bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Francis Marion University. I am a native of Chesterfield, SC where I currently reside with my husband of ten years and my two sons. During my spare time, I enjoy fishing, shopping, and spending time with family and friends.
