     Ms. Kuriger Pat Kuriger Kindergarten
    I have been teaching for 32 years. 17 years in NY and 15 in GA. I have also received "Teacher of the Year" in both states. I am here to encourage the love of learning; the growth of a child's self-esteem through their individual identities, strengths, and interests. Focus will be on the "whole" child, physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

    Ms. Vaughan   Christie Vaughan Kindergarten
    This will be my 21st year of teaching.I taught kindergarten at Haw Creek Elementary for  9 years. I also taught first grade at Big Creek Elementary for three years prior. Before moving to Georgia in 2006, I taught for 7 years in Lebanon, Tennessee. While there I taught kindergarten, first, and second grades. I also grew up and attended college in Tennessee. My family still lives in Greeneville, where I was born, 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 gifted certification in 2012. I also have a teacher support specialist certification.  I am excited to be returning to the kindergarten team at Settles Bridge this year!
