Ms. Rhonda Solley

I am Rhonda Solley, I started out as a fourth grade teacher in 1997 at Pike Elementary and in 1999 went back to school to earn a Masters in Gifted and Talented and began the next fall as a GATE teacher for Fort Smith. I have loved every minute of my job. Over the past years I have solved many mysteries, traveled the wonders, produced a movie, made and launched many rockets, learned a little about four languages, practiced thousand's of quiz bowl questions, just a few of the things we have accomplished together and taught thousand's of kids. I enjoy former GATE kids telling me that GATE was their favorite class and then they ask, "Do you remember when we did this?" The memories former kids have make my job the best!
