The past eight years I’ve been teaching Kindergarten (2 years) and First Grade (6 years) at Daves Creek Elementary. I graduated from Georgia Southwestern State University with bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, and from University of West Georgia received master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. In addition, I’ve obtained both an ESOL and math endorsement. My husband Jeremy and I have been married for 10 years and we welcomed our sweet baby boy Leo in November of 2020. I enjoy reading, DIY projects and traveling. I absolutely love teaching first grade and I look forward to meeting my sweet kiddos and collaborating with all of their parents. 350290 KMerritt@forsyth.k12.ga.us Felicia Tinsley Hi there! I'm Felicia Tinsley, and this will be my 9th year of teaching. My first year of teaching was in 3rd grade, and I've been teaching 1st grade ever since. I spent 6 years with Cherokee County School District and joined Forsyth County Schools in 2020. This will be my 3rd year here at Silver City. I absolutely love this school and all our staff. Teaching is my passion. I love helping kids to believe in themselves, learn how to be mindful, learn how to read while enjoying what reading has in store for them, and how to find the fun and magic in math. I'm that teacher who enjoys throwing a "Fun Friday", who is not afraid to dance crazy and sing at the top of my lungs with the kids, and will tear up at those "lightbulb moments" my students have throughout the year. Kids need love, and I love my job and my students. Let's do this 2022-2023! 350289 firstname.lastname@example.org
