    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.

    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 fourth grade and Liam is in second 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 third-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.

    Christie Vaughan

    I am so excited to be joining the Kindergarten team at Vickery Creek Elementary!  I am originally from Greeneville, TN and I received both my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science degrees from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.  Throughout my 25 year teaching career, I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grades, but I am a kindergarten teacher at heart.  I strive to be a lifelong learner by continuously pursuing opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.  I have completed my Educational Specialist degree (Ed. S.) in Teaching and Learning, and I am certified in gifted education.  I also have a teacher support specialist certification and enjoy mentoring new teachers to the profession.  My husband, Tom, and I have lived in the area since 2006 and are the proud parents of a 3 year old daughter, Anna Claire.  When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, taking my daughter to the park, and spending time with friends and family.  Teaching is my passion and I treat each child who walks through the door as one of my own.  I am honored to be a part of this incredible school family.

    Dawn Walters

    Hi! My name is Ms. Walters and I love being a teacher! This is my twenty-fourth year at VCE and my twenty-sixth 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!
