Mrs. Adam Mary Catherine Adam
I graduated from The University of Georgia with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a math endorsement.  I hold a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through American College of Education that I earned four years ago.  I have been teaching for eight years all in First Grade and all at Daves Creek!  My husband and I welcomed our first child two years ago.   Teaching young minds has brought a whole new perspective for me now that I have a child of my own.  I look forward to working with you and your child this year!

I am so excited to be teaching First Grade at Daves Creek!  I am a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and I have been teaching Kindergarten and First Grade for the last 19 years.  I have been married to Dustin for 23 years and I have two super children, Aaron (11th Grade) and Emma (8th Grade).  I enjoy reading, watching Falcons football, Braves baseball & Nascar and I really love to teach!  My goal is for your children to leave my classroom with a love for learning and a love for school.  I believe that they will thrive in an environment where they are valued and with that in mind, I will strive to make sure that each child has a special place in our classroom.  I really look forward to working with you and your children this year!

I am so excited to be your first grade teacher! This is my third year at Daves Creek. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. When I am not teaching I love to hang out with my family and friends. I enjoy reading, running, and baking. My goal is to create a positive classroom environment where each child feels comfortable to learn and be themselves. I want all of my students to leave my classroom with the love of learning.

I recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I am originally from the Toledo, Ohio area and moved to Georgia to be closer to family, including my older brother and 11 year old niece. This is my first year teaching and I feel extremely lucky to be in such an amazing school with such talented students and staff! My goal is to create an environment in my classroom where each student feels welcomed and valued. I want your child to leave my classroom each day with an excitement and love for learning!

I am very excited to be teaching First Grade at Daves Creek!  I am looking forward to being your child's First Grade teacher.  I am a graduate of Georgia State University.   This is my 19th year of teaching.  I taught Third Grade for three years, Kindergarten for eight years, Fourth and Fifth Grade Reading and Math for one year, and this is my seventh year in First Grade at Daves Creek.   My approach to education is based on my sincere interest in the children, seeing them grow and develop as individuals, and sharing with them my enthusiasm for learning.  It is my philosophy to look for the best in students, and to do whatever is necessary to help them develop a love for lifelong learning.  I live in Forsyth County with my husband of nineteen years and my two sons, ages 13 and 16.  In my free time, I enjoy shopping and watching both of my sons play baseball.
