Wendi Guthrie

I am a Georgia native and have lived in Forsyth County for sixteen years.  I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful daughters.  My oldest, Linzy, is married and lives in Canton with her husband.  Sydney lives in Athens and is a junior at UGA.  Kaylie is our youngest and will be a 2nd grader at Big Creek this year.  Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family and friends.  I also enjoy reading, shopping (I have 3 girls!), and vacationing!

Welcome to 1st grade!  I am looking forward to working with you and your child to have a fun and successful year!

Jessica Keomany

Welcome! My name is Jessica Keomany and I'm a Florida native. A little over 3 years ago, my family, moved to Alpharetta when my husband's job relocated us. We have 2 beautiful daughters. Sydney will be a 10th grader at Chattahoochee High School and Kaida will be a 3rd grader here at Big Creek. I worked with Fulton County as a 2nd/3rd grade teacher for the past three years and am beyond thrilled to join the Big Creek family. I enjoy watching my students become independent citizens and active learners. I'm looking forward to a fabulous year!

Christina Sharif

My name is Christina Sharif. I graduated from the University of North Georgia with my degree in Early Childhood Education. Right after college I moved to Delaware with my husband because of his job relocation. We lived in Delaware for two years, however missed the South so much we had to come back! It’s great to be back in Georgia because we both grew up here!
