Hey there. My name is Ms. Gizinski or Ms. G, as most of my families say!
I live in Cumming with my daughters, Anna, 18 and Maggie, 15.
I enjoy traveling, running, time on the water & spending time with friends and family.
I grew up in Portland, Michigan and my daughters and I return to visit every summer, so my we can spend a lot of time with my parents, nieces, nephews, and siblings.
I was thankful to earn athletic scholarships to play softball & volleyball throughout college, and in May of 2002, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education from Huron University in Huron, South Dakota. In July 2010, I graduated from Piedmont College with a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I love to learn, and I am considering working toward my goal of earning my specialist degree and possibly my doctorate in the next few years.
This year will be my 17th year of teaching. I previously taught for 5 years at Silver City Elementary and this is my 10th year here at Vickery Creek! 😊
I am so excited to make this first year of school your child’s best beginning ever!
180310 email@example.com Krista Jones Hi! My name is Krista Jones and I am so excited to be joining the VCE team. My husband and I moved to Cumming in 2012. We have two sweet boys. Ethan is in second grade and Liam is in kindergarten here at VCE. We also have a one year old puppy named Pixie. I love spending time with my boys: reading books, playing soccer, and exercising.
Even though I am new, I am not new to teaching. I graduated summa cum laude from Georgia College and State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught first grade for six years. Two years were in Putnam County and four at Big Creek Elementary. I was fortunate to be able to stay home with my two boys and I homeschooled them when they were each 2 and 3. This past year I taught preschool at Midway Preschool. I am really looking forward to a great year at Vickery Creek!
180322 firstname.lastname@example.org Cameron Stewart Hi there! I am so excited to be part of the VCE family! This is my 11th year teaching. I taught 1st grade for 5 years and this is my 6th year teaching Kindergarten! I am looking forward to seeing the growth and progress that each day brings!
My husband and I have 2 sweet boys. James is in Kindergarten here at VCE and Corbin is 3. We enjoy swinging, riding bikes, and playing baseball!
What a great year this will be!

I am thrilled to begin my twelfth-year teaching! I’ve taught first, second, pre-k and kindergarten. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with Endorsements in ESOL and Reading from the University of North Georgia.
I am originally from South Africa and moved to Georgia with my family in 2001, so you may hear an accent from time to time. 😊
I have been married to my husband, Jared, for thirteen years, and we have two sweet boys. Judah will be in Second grade, and Colton will be in Kindergarten here at VCE! We love going to the beach, hiking, camping in our backyard 😉, and doing home projects!
I LOVE teaching Kindergarten, and I am so excited to meet this year’s group of Kindergarteners!
