Dear parents,

I am so excited to be joining the Eden Gardens team this year!  I will be teaching your fourth grader science and social studies, which are two of my favorite subjects, and will soon be their favorites as well.  I look forward to incorporating unique science experiments, hands-on projects, and technology to make science and social studies fun.  It is going to be an awesome year!

I am from Shreveport and graduated from C.E. Byrd High School, where I met my wife, Holly, who is an ophthalmologist.  She is also an Eden Gardens alumnus and still retains her Eagle spirit.  I received a B.A. in Political Science and a Masters in Teaching from Louisiana Tech. This will be my eighth year teaching elementary school.  I have taught for seven years in Caddo parish, and I taught one year in Andover, Massachusetts, while my wife was finishing her medical training in Boston.

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing summer!  I spent my days organizing my classroom, running, and hanging out with my daughter.  Caroline Friday Guy spent tons of quality time with her dad this summer and is ready for a bit of a break, I’m sure.  She will be an Eden Gardens Eagle in a few short years!

I look forward to meeting you all.  Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress.  My email address is sguy@caddoschools.org.  I will try to respond as soon as possible.  With your help, we can make this an amazing year for your child!

Sincerely,

Sammy Guy
