Andy Baumgartner, kindergarten teacher at A. Brian Merry Elementary School in Augusta, provides each child he teaches with a strong start in school. His background in speech and language pathology, as well as early childhood education, enables him to identify and address children's developmental problems at an early stage, which can impact significantly on their later academic success. He shares his expertise as chairman of the Richmond County Task Force on Kindergarten Assessment, and is the county's Language Arts Trainer in Residence for Kindergarten Teachers. Mr. Baumgartner is also author of Helping Your Child At Home...with Mathematics (Level K).
