My name is Aroneysa Braxton-Harris and I have been teaching for 25 years. I taught in Arkansas for 4 prior to moving to Georgia. While in Georgia I have taught Early Childhood Education at Cedar Grove High School for 21 years. I was Teacher of the Year at Cedar Grove High School in 2010 and a member of the CTAE LEAD class of 2019. I teach my class as a project based course. My students love creating their child abuse movies, holiday cakes, puppet shows, and earning certifications. My FCCLA members advanced to national competition every year from 2010-2020.
