About Mrs. Gwyn

I have been teaching for 25 years and still love it.  The hardest part of my job is getting out of bed in the morning.  I am married, have six children (ages range from 7 to 29), and 4 grandchildren (one on the way).  I am the proud mama of three children who are serving in the US military: one in Air Force, one in Navy, and one in Army.  We are a sports-loving family and stay very busy after school.  My husband is the worship leader at our church and I play the keyboard with the praise band.
I currently teach the PRIDE class here at Cheatham Middle School, which is a classroom specifically for children on the autism spectrum.  These students are my pride and joy and have amazing talents! 
We begin our school day by taking a coffee cart around the school and offering coffee to our wonderful teachers and staff, as well as any visitors we may see along the way.  Every Friday, we offer slushies to the student body.  
You are welcome to visit the classroom any time- just sign in with the office and let me know you are here.
