    I’m very passionate about being a teacher and love what I do. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of North Georgia, and received my Master’s Degree from Piedmont College. Four years ago, I was blessed to join Silver City Elementary School and make it my new home. I’ve been happily married for 28 years, and have two wonderful sons (Dillon & Justin).

    I am so excited to be teaching first grade again this year. This will be my 4th year teaching, and my home has been with my first graders. I absolutely love this phase of learning, and I love watching my students grow their brain throughout the year. As someone who grew up in Forsyth County, I love teaching in the community that taught me, and I truly love being a Comet!

     E Souders  Emily Souders
    My name is Emily Souders and I am so excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! This will be my 8th year teaching and my 3rd year as a Comet. My first 5 years in education were spent at Brookwood Elementary in South Forsyth. I completed my undergraduate degree in 2012 from NGCSU and earned my Master’s degree from Valdosta State University in the Fall of 2017. I have experience teaching 3rd grade, Kindergarten and 1st grade but 1st grade is definitely my heart and my passion. There is nothing better than watching my kiddos grow in their excitement for learning and taking ownership of our classroom. In my free time, I love traveling and spending time with my husband Noah and our sweet baby girl, Vivian.
