     I am thrilled to be joining the Kindergarten team and Settles Bridge family! This will be my fourth year teaching Kindergarten. I graduated from Georgia College with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a reading endorsement. I grew up in Alpharetta and currently live in Roswell with my husband Jake and our sweet dog Mila. When I am not teaching, I enjoy hiking and drinking lots of iced coffee. I'm looking forward to meeting the brand new Stars and having a great school year together!

    Hi students and families!! I joined SBE in Jan 2021, so I'm fairly new to the school. I taught 3rd grade face to face here last school year. I previously taught first grade for ten years, five of those years at Big Creek Elementary here in Forsyth. I grew up as a military child and moved eleven times in my eighteen years of childhood. I lived all over the U.S., and even spent some years overseas in the Azores and Korea. I attended the University of Tennessee earning a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. I have been married for twelve years and have three children, ages 9, 7, and 5. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, trying new restaurants, and taking classes on my Peloton. I am absolutely thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten this year! I am dedicated to providing a loving, patient, and enthusiastic learning experience for your child!

    I am so excited to be a part of the Kindergarten team at SBE! I attended Auburn University and earned a degree in Elementary Education, with a concentration in psychology. This will be my twenty- sixth year in education, with seventeen spent at Settles Bridge. I'm honored to have been named Teacher of the Year at Settles Bridge two times, as well as at my former school. My husband and I live in Suwanee and have one son who is in 9th grade at Lambert. Please know that I am always here for you and your children. I genuinely appreciate the opportunity to work with your family.

    Ms. Vaughan   Christie Vaughan Kindergarten
    I am so excited to be a member of the kindergarten team at Settles Bridge again! I have been teaching for 23 years. I’ve taught both kindergarten and first grade. 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. I completed my Educational Specialist degree (Ed. S.) in Teaching and Learning through Piedmont College in May 2010 and a certification in gifted education in 2012. I also have a teacher support specialist certification and enjoy mentoring new teachers to the profession. My husband and I live in Cumming and are the proud parents of a one year old daughter. Teaching is my passion and I treat each child who walks through my door as one of my own. Settles Bridge is a very special place and I am honored to be part of this incredible school family.
