Hello my name is Darina Coffey and this is my seventh year working in a
Special Needs Pre-K class at Tritt. I feel very fortunate to have a job I
love, and to work with wonderful and supportive colleagues.
Previously, I lived in Oregon for three and a half years and while there I
also worked with students with special needs. I am from Ireland and have been
in the U.S. since 1983. I moved here to Georgia in 1999 with my husband Will,
and our two sons, the youngest of whom attended Tritt and is now at Georgia
Tech. My oldest son recently completed Graduate School at Washington
University in St. Louis and is now employed in that area.
I like to travel, play tennis, read and spend time with my family. There are
two other very important members of my family, Liam and Coco, our dog and
cat, both rescued from Cobb County humane society. We all live in Marietta.
Hello, my name is Lynda Stallworth. This is my 13th year working in Cobb
County schools, previously as a special education teacher in inclusion and
small group classes. I’m very excited to be working at Tritt as a Parapro in
SNPK. My adult son and daughter attended Tritt many years ago, so I feel
right at home! I was born in Alaska and, being part of an Air Force family,
moved every two years while growing up. My family has lived in the Tritt
area for the last twenty-eight years. Now that my children have left the
nest, I’m happy just taking care of my two cats: Nuala and Gibbs.
My interests are reading, travel, photography, needlework and technology.
