Instagram Takeover Graves
This is a good week to become a follower of the Georgia Department of Educations Instagram account because it will focus on children at Glenwood Primary School.  Carrie Graves, a second-grade teacher at Glenwood, has taken over the Department of Education's account to share photos of activities at Glenwood Primary School.  Graves was selected to be a part of the Department of Education's Instagram Teacher Takeover. This is the second Glenwood takeover of the account as April Cummings, a gifted elementary teacher at the school, took over the account back in November. 

This school year, teachers from various schools have been chosen to takeover the state's Instagram to share what is happening in classrooms across the state.  As part of this special project, teachers were asked to share the world of an educator with other Georgians and followers of the Department of Education through pictures and brief narratives using the GaDOE Instagram platform.

Graves is halfway through her week and she has captured many of Glenwood's end of the school year activities.  Instagram captures have included the visit by Armuchee High for their graduation walk, field day, students saying goodbye to primary school life and classroom learning activities. Graves has showcased her students engaged in learning in the classroom, attending school events, and class projects.
