    Mrs. Hoxie Jennifer Hoxie Second Grade
    I have been teaching at Settles Bridge since it's inaugural year of 1999. I have taught in grades k-2. I love teaching but when I have spare time I enjoy tennis and UGA football games. I have 2 daughters - one who will attend Riverwatch and one who will attend Lambert next year! I am thankful for all the wonderful students that I have crossed paths with and look forward to what the future has in store.

    Mrs. Hutson Kim Hutson Second Grade
    I received a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. Lindenwood is a small, private University just outside of St. Louis. I also hold a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Teaching Through the Arts from Lesley University. I hold a Gifted In-Field Endorsement as well. I have been a member of the Settles Bridge community from almost the beginning, joining in 2000! It has been a honor to begin, and continue my teaching career at such an amazing school! Twenty years has gone by in a flash and it has been a joy to be a part of so many children’s lives! I am looking forward to another wonderful year at Settles Bridge!

     Dr. Kelley Jerry Kelley  Second Grade
    This is my 10th year at SBE, and I am excited to be joining the second grade team. Previously I taught at Chestatee for 10 years, and middle school in California before moving to Georgia. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Child and Adolescent Development as well as teaching certification from California State University, Fullerton. I achieved my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education, Specialist degree in Teacher Leadership, and Leadership endorsement/credentials from North Georgia University, where I also taught Masters level Reading Endorsement courses for 4 years. I earned a PhD in Educational Policy Analysis from GA State and am also endorsed in Reading, ESOL, Teacher Support Specialist, Online Teaching, Teacher Leadership, Gifted, and Special Education. I believe we are all learners throughout our lives and a love of learning is one of the greatest gifts we can share with our students/children.
