    Rebecca Bronson

    Hi! My name is Rebecca Bronson. This will be my twenty-third year teaching at Vickery Creek Elementary! I love everything about our school! I have taught second grade, first grade, and kindergarten. When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family.  My husband's name is Marshall.  We have three beautiful children.  Caroline is twenty-one and attends North Georgia College, Jackson is nineteen and attends the University of North Georgia, and Cameron is seventeen and is a senior at West Forsyth High School.  We LOVE watching LSU football and The British Premier League. Caroline, Jackson, and I cheer for Manchester United and Marshall and Cameron cheer for Liverpool. When I have some free time, I enjoy crafting and decorating.

    Allison Gizinski

    Hey there everyone! I’m Ms. Gizinski or as most of my families call me, Ms. G. 😊

    I live in Cumming with my fiancé, Thomas, and our children, Anna-19, Maggie-16, and Jayden-11.

    Currently, I’m spending a lot of time planning our fall 2023 wedding & honeymoon—and it’s so exciting!

    Some of my other favorite things to do include traveling, running, spending as much time as possible in/near water & spending time with friends and family.

    I grew up in Portland, Michigan and my family and I return to visit every summer, so we can spend a lot of time with my parents, nieces, nephews, and siblings. 

    I was thankful to earn athletic scholarships to play softball & volleyball throughout my college career, and in May of 2002, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education from Huron University in Huron, South Dakota. In July 2010, I graduated from Piedmont College with a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I love to learn, and I am considering working toward my goal of earning my specialist degree and possibly my doctorate in the near future.

    I’m proud to say that this year will be my 18th year of teaching!  I began my career teaching fourth grade in Florida in 2003 and then moved on to south Georgia where I found my love for all things kindergarten. Over my last 16 years here in Forsyth County, I have enjoyed teaching Kindergarten for 5 years at Silver City Elementary and somehow time has flown by here at Vickery Creek and this will be my 11th year of teaching as a VCE Viking! 😊

    I am so excited to make this first year of school your child’s best beginning ever and I hope you and your child are just as excited!

    Krista Jones

    Hi, my name is Krista Jones, and I am so happy to be your child's teacher this year.  My husband and I moved to Cumming in 2011.  We have two sweet boys.  Ethan is in third grade and Liam is in first grade here at VCE.  We also have a sweet dog named Pixie.  I love spending time with my guys: reading books, playing soccer, and fishing. 

    I graduated summa cum laude from Georgia College and State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I also have my math endorsement.  This year will be my second-year teaching Kindergarten at Vickery Creek Elementary. I also taught first grade for six years. Two years were in Putnam County and four at Big Creek Elementary. I was fortunate to be able to stay home with my two boys.  I homeschooled them when they were each 2 and 3. I also taught preschool at Midway Preschool.

    Dawn Walters

    Hi! My name is Ms. Walters and I love being a teacher! This is my twenty-third year at VCE and my twenty-fifth year teaching. Over the years I have taught First Grade, Second Grade, Kindergarten, & Pre-K. I have enjoyed growing and learning more with my students and school community every year.  

    I have a sweet puppy named Cassie and I am a huge nature lover. I love to go hiking and kayaking. In the fall you will probably find me cheering on my favorite teams - "Go Dawgs!" "Rise up Atl!" "Let's go Braves!" It’s going to be a wonderful year and I can't wait to get to know you and your family!
