     Ms. Doniphan Michelle Doniphan Fourth Grade

    I am so excited to begin my 19th year in education at Settles Bridge! I graduated with my B.S. in Elementary Education from the College of Charleston. I completed my M.Ed. at Auburn University and finished my Ed.S. in Teacher Leadership/Inclusive Education in 2012. I earned my Gifted Certification in 2013. During that time, my husband and I relocated to Marietta in 2006 and had our two sons, Seth (5th grade) and Evan (3rd) grade . This is our third year living in Forsyth County, and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

     Ms. Matthews Nikki Matthews Fourth Grade

    With a long line of educators in my family, I found my natural calling as an elementary school teacher 6 years ago. Providing students with exciting and engaging ways to learn is my number one focus. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Education in 2010 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Immediately after undergrad, I began my journey at the University of West Alabama where I received my Masters of Psychology and Counseling in 2012. I attended Piedmont College where I received my Education Specialist degree in Spring 2017. Majority of my teaching career was spent with the Birmingham City Schools where I served in several positions . I am now entering my 5th year as a 4th grade teacher and happy to call Settles Bridge HOME!
