     Ms. Budock  Carly Burdock STAR Lab
    I have always wanted to be a teacher, but I didn't pursue it right away. I first received a B.F.A in graphic design from Memphis College of Art in Memphis, Tennessee. I joined the advertising world as a designer and consultant. I stayed home when my daughter was born. Shortly after I had my son, I happily welcomed the opportunity to continue my love of children and creativity by teaching preschool for seven years. Through teaching young children, I found that the passion within me to be an educator was loud as ever and growing! This time I listened! I obtained my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Brenau University and received my certification in Gifted Education. I have been teaching at Settles Bridge since 2013.

    Ms. Reimbold Megan Reimbold Keyboarding
    I am very excited to work in the Media Center at Settles Bridge. Reading is a passion of mine and I believe, a gateway to success in life. My son, now a Senior, and daughter, in 10th grade, both attended Settles Bridge. I spent many of my years as a parent at SBE both volunteering and as a substitute teacher.  This is my fourth year in the Media Center. Students in Grades 2 - 5 will visit the media center as part of their specials rotation to learn keyboarding skills, as well as to check out books. Grades K and 1st will visit the media center on a regular basis to check out books, and periodically as an extension of classroom activities.  I truly enjoy working with all of our students here at Settles Bridge!
