Mrs. Welborn: Chaffin’s Newcomer


Abbi Moore

There are many new teachers at Chaffin, but let’s talk about Mrs. Welborn. She is the school’s new GATE (Gifted and Talented) educator. She told me, “I started teaching because I felt like that’s what I needed to do.” Mrs. Welborn definitely isn’t new to teaching, she started with 4th to 9th grade in Georgia. 

Besides teaching GATE, Mrs. Welborn also coaches Chaffin’s very own Quiz Bowl team. As a teacher, Mrs. Welborn feels that she should give her students choices to help expand thinking. A quote Mrs. Welborn really likes is, “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them”-Walt Disney. Some fun facts about her are that she loves Disney World, During the summer, she enjoys swimming. Mrs. Welborn also enjoys watching medical shows.

Growing up, Mrs. Welborn’s favorite subject was science. She is from Georgia and became a certified orthodontist assistant at only fifteen years old! Mrs. Welborn has two kids- a daughter in college and a son in 8th grade here at Chaffin! I had asked Mrs. Welborn if there are certain things that she would like to see at Chaffin and she replied with, “I wish things could go back to normal.” Overall, Mrs. Welborn thinks Chaffin is a great school and she’s happy to be here. Welcome to Chaffin, Mrs. Welborn! We’re happy you’re here.
