Mrs. LaShonda Garvin


Greetings, Bloomingdale Family! My name is LaShonda Garvin and I am excited to serve as your 2020 Teacher of the Year. It has been my pleasure to be a part of such a great community of students, parents, and teachers for the past 7 years. I am currently the gifted resource teacher for grades 1st-3rd. I have had a love for teaching since the age of 8. Many elementary school teachers fostered this desire, which led to my brothers becoming the first two of many students that I would educate during my career. I often forced them to play school with me, which they continue to tease me about to this very day. 

 When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. You may also find me in the kitchen baking, watching television, or going to church. While I enjoy watching my students learn, there is nothing more important than the relationships that teachers build with students along the way. When I receive hugs and updates from students that I previously taught, it makes my choice to become an educator, one of the most rewarding experiences ever.
