    This is will be my 6th year teaching and all have been in 5th grade! I will be starting my third year here at Silver City and have loved being a Comet! I graduated from North Forsyth and have lived in Forsyth county my entire life. I received my bachelor’s degree from Valdosta State University and my master’s from Georgia Southern. I love to travel and spend time with my family. I also am a huge sports fan, Go Braves! I can’t wait to start the year off!

    I’ve been part of the Silver City family since 2008, and I have taught grades 2nd through 5th during my career. In 2005, after leaving the IT world, I graduated from Brenau University with a B.S. Degree in Early Childhood Education. Teaching reading and writing and helping my teammates has always been my passion, so I furthered my education and completed a Masters Degree in Reading and Literacy in August 2007 and a Specialist Degree in Teacher Leadership in 2012 from Walden University. I am the mom of two amazing boys, Joey and Luke. I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog Ranger.

     It has been my honor to be a member of the Silver City family since 2015. Prior to moving to Georgia, I lived in North Carolina where I taught math and science for 14 years before becoming a math and science coach for an additional 3 years.  I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a master’s degree in Curriculum and Administration from UNC-Pembroke. I am currently pursuing my Georgia math endorsement.  I am blessed with 5 amazing children, Mallory, Haylie, Joshua, Samantha, and Dylan.  Additionally, I have 3 wonderful children as my children’s spouses, Wesley is married to Mallory, Morgan is married to Joshua, and Garret is married to Samantha.  Last, but certainly not least, I have 5 adorable grandchildren, Easton, Evie, Killian, Bella and Ryan.

    Hello! My name is Katie Vaughan, and I am excited to begin my 13th year of teaching this year as a Silver City Comet! I am a proud product of the Forsyth County School System and honored to be teaching in the same community where I was raised. I attended Coal Mountain Elementary, North Forsyth Middle School, and North Forsyth High School before graduating from the University of Georgia with three degrees in Early Childhood Education. I am a proud Triple Dawg! My husband, Nathan, and I live in the Silver City community with our two beautiful daughters, Blakely (6) and Brooke (1). You can find us cheering on the Dawgs in Athens (or around the country) at baseball, basketball, and football games. Go Dawgs!
