Mrs. Sonja D'Souza

My name is Sonja D'Souza and I am happy to be part of the Jefferson Elementary School family. I will teach third grade in room 311.

I am originally from Austria but have come to love my new life here in North Carolina. My husband and I have lived here for more than 25 years and raised two wonderful young men. Our oldest son Kevin actually lives and works presently in Austria near where my family lives, while our younger son Sean lives closer to home. It comes as no surprise that we love traveling and exploring new places. I can't wait until the temperatures get cooler and I am able to pull out all the wool I collected over the year to start knitting again. Don't be suprised if you hear your child talk about Mrs. D'Souza's crazy socks.

This is my tenth year teaching third grade in Forsyth County. I graduated from UNC Greensboro with a Bachelor's Degree in Science and a M. Ed. from Salem College. I never thought that my life's journey would lead me to become a teacher, but it is by far the most rewarding gift I have been granted. I don't believe there is a greater blessing than to take part in a child's journey through life.
