     Ms. Kuriger  Pat Kuriger Kindergarten
    I have been teaching for 31 years. 17  years in NY and 14 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. Maguire  Taylor Maguire Kindergarten

    I am overjoyed to be a part of the family here at Settles Bridge! I just graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a Reading Endorsement! I am so thankful to be returning to Forsyth County Schools- where I was once a student. I desire to create an environment where all students feel welcomed, valued, and loved resulting in confidence to discover their great potential and become the stars they were meant to be!! I look forward to this year of lots of fun and firsts in Kindergarten!

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

     Ms. Lori Perkins Lori Perkins Kindergarten
    I am absolutely thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten at Settles Bridge Elementary. My journey has taken me from a corporate career in human resources and training to teaching. The last several years I have been teaching in a young fives classroom. I love this age student - they are so excited to learn. I have an undergraduate degree from Emory University in Psychology and Cultural Anthropology. I earned a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education with a Reading endorsement from Reinhardt University. I am looking forward to meeting you all. We are going to have a fun filled year of learning together!

    Mrs. Vaughan   Christie Vaughan Kindergarten
    I have taught kindergarten at Haw Creek Elementary for the past 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 joining the kindergarten team at Settles Bridge this year!
