Hi! My name is Katie Johns and I am so happy to be part of the VCE family. I attended Georgia Southern University and graduated with my Masters In Arts and Teaching. While at Southern I met my husband, Ryan, and we have two kids, Charleigh and Colton, that also attend VCE.
When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, being on the lake, and watching the Kansas City Chiefs! I coach Charleigh’s cheerleading squad and my husband coaches Colton’s youth sports so you can most likely catch me at Midway Park.
This is such a special season of life and I am looking forward to another year of helping our students succeed. Its going to be a great year!
180402 firstname.lastname@example.org Ashley Cunningham - IRR Hello! I am Ms. McKenna. I went to Valdosta State University for my undergraduate degree in Special Education General Curriculum. I am currently working on my master's degree through Georgia Southern for Special Education. Fun fact, I attended Vickery Creek Elementary as a child, and I was the first charter class of VCE. I went on to Vickery Creek Middle and graduated from West Forsyth High School. Growing up in the Forsyth County schools with the support of my amazing teachers, inspired me to become a special education teacher. I hope to inspire my students in the same way in which I was inspired. 180235 email@example.com Charity Daniel

180269 firstname.lastname@example.org Misty Sprayberry - IRR My husband, Timothy and I have been married for 17 years. He is a retired Deputy Sheriff. We have two sons Keith (13) and Logan (9). We recently moved back to Timothy’s hometown of Rome, Ga. After graduating college, I was an Operations Manager for a local bank in Cumming. With the birth of my son Logan, I realized that I wanted a career change. My first experience in education was at a preschool where I worked my way up to Center Director. Realizing that teaching is my true passion, I joined Vickery Creek Elementary as a Kindergarten Paraprofessional. I am excited to continue my educational journey as a Special Education teacher! I chose Early Childhood Education because I believe that a lifelong love of learning is sparked early in children. Watching children learn and realize they really can accomplish their goals is something I am lucky to be a part of. 180302 email@example.com Amy Waller - IRR
