Rebecca Barrow Although my family is not native to Forsyth County, we love living here. I have taught in Forsyth County schools for 23 years. I've taught grades Kindergarten through fourth. I received my teaching degree from Brenau University. Teaching is exciting and demanding, but I wouldn't do anything else! 350299 RBarrow@forsyth.k12.ga.us Hope Cleveland Hey guys! I'm Hope Cleveland and this is my 7th year teaching! I have taught grades K-2 and love all of my sweet students each and every year! My favorite thing about teaching is creating an engaging, positive, and FUN learning environment for students, as well as developing meaningful relationships too! When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Cory and our two daughters, Piper & Collins. We enjoy doing fun, adventurous things together, as well as cheering on the Dawgs every fall. I am SO excited to be in 1st grade this year! Go Comets! 350283

I'm Felicia Tinsley and will be back in First Grade this year. This will be my 8th year of teaching with one year of 3rd grade experience and six years of 1st grade experience. My teaching experience comes from being a graduate of Reinhardt University and teaching in Cherokee County and now Forsyth County.
