    Avera   Kelley Avera  
    I have been an educator for 28 years and this is my 21st year at Daves Creek. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a B.A. in Business Administration and my Teacher Certification. In 2006, I earned my Master's in Elementary Education, then in 2008, earned my Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College. I received my Gifted Endorsement in 2014 followed by my Math Endorsement in 2016. I completed my STEM Endorsement in the spring of 2019. I love to incorporate technology in my teaching. I know that students work best when they are engaged and having fun while learning and I try to accomplish this in my lessons

    This year will be my 25th year of teaching, 16 of those years at Daves Creek Elementary. I have experience teaching Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Second, Fourth and Fifth grades. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Kennesaw State University and my Master of Arts and Education Specialist degrees from Piedmont College. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and my precious dog, Hunter. My hobbies include reading, baking, and watching college football.

Then, I earned a Master's degree from the University of South Alabama in Elementary Education, and my Educational Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College. Also, I have earned my Math, Gifted, ESOL and STEM Endorsement.

    Keller   Janet Keller  
    In 1990, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from UGA with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, and then completed my master's degree at Georgia State University. I earned National Board Certification in 2013, and I have served as a teacher mentor to many student teachers and SFHS teaching interns. I love working with kids, and I have 29 years of experience in the classroom, grades K-4, including 19 years at Daves Creek. I believe in continuing to learn and grow to better serve my kids, and I have been chosen to be part of exciting initiatives in Forsyth such as the Innovation in Teaching and the Grading and Reporting Task Force committees, as well as completing my Math Endorsement this year.

    I am thrilled to be joining the Daves Creek Family for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be my 18th year as an educator. I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and now I get the privilege to teach 4th grade at Daves Creek. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, as well as a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with Technology from NOVA Southeastern University, and also have earned a gifted certification. I have previously taught in Gwinnett County for the past 14 years. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, which includes my two boys Tyler, who is 4 and Sawyer, 6, who will be a first grader at Daves Creek this coming school year. I am excited to be your fourth grade teacher and look forward to meeting all of you this coming school year!

    This is my 16th year teaching overall, and fifth year at Daves Creek. I previously taught kindergarten for three years in Delaware, my home state. I then moved to New Jersey and taught 5th grade for eight years. I taught fifth grade here for two years before making the switch to fourth. My goal is to create an exciting and challenging classroom to push your child to reach his or her fullest potential and enjoy learning. I look forward to another great year with you and your children here at Daves Creek!

    This is my sixth year teaching and my third year teaching 4th grade at Daves Creek. I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2015 with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. Go Eagles and Hail Southern! As a proud Daves Creek alumni, I am so excited to continue the DCE "way" by developing children's excellence and success through student's thinking, exploring, and making real-world connections. I look forward to another fabulous school year and getting to know each and every student and their families! #WeAreDavesCreek
