|Hi! My name is Kristen Durant. My family moved to Forsyth County from Maryland 11 years ago and consider ourselves lucky to be part of the Coal Mountain community. I am fortunate to have my three wonderful children, Jake, Mallory, and Ella attending CMES with me as well. In my free time, I enjoy watching my children play their sports and spending time on Lake Lanier. I am excited to be at Coal Mountain for another year of teaching fourth grade and looking forward to a great year!|

My name is Torri Keller and I am excited to be joining the
Coal Mountain Team this year. I graduated from what is now the University of
North Georgia in 2004 and started teaching at Sugar Hill Elementary School in
Hall County. I taught there for 11 years where I had the chance to teach First,
Second, Third, and Special Education. My husband, Allan, and I have two
wonderful boys. Wesley is 5 years old and starting Kindergarten this year. Liam
just turned one is learning to walk and play. I look forward to a wonderful
getting to know your children and the school.
